Ong on Rectification

In Ong on Rectification, Professor Denis SK Ong brings his customary penetrating analysis of the authorities to the equitable remedy of rectification. Topics discussed include: the nature of rectification; a detailed exploration of the principles of contractual construction; the difference between construction and rectification; rectification of both common and unilateral mistakes; and rectification of wills. Professor Ong very carefully sets out both the Australian and English authorities, highlighting the differences between them as well as remaining "grey" or unresolved areas. His analysis of the High Court decisions on construction, following the House of Lords decision in Chartbrook Ltd, is particularly illuminating in this regard. He quotes extensively, though judiciously, from the cases and is unafraid to point out problems he perceives in the reasoning contained therein. As such this book will be an invaluable resource for all those involved in contractual construction, disputes and adjudication. The book is Professor Ong's seventh major book in the field of equity and is the perfect supplement to his earlier works which now include: Trusts Law in Australia (now in its 4th edition); Ong on Equity; Ong on Specific Performance; Ong on Subrogation; Ong on Rescission and Ong on Contribution.

About the Author

Denis Ong is a Professor of Law at Bond University. He has been teaching Equity and Trusts for over 35 years, at the Australian National University, Macquarie University and Bond University. Prior to his appointment at Bond University, he was Head of the Law School at Macquarie University from 1987-1989. In addition to Equity and Trusts he is also interested in the Law of Secured Transactions.


At its core, Professor Ong's work on rectification is a comprehensive and helpful guide to the principles to be applied in an action for rectification. Equitable relief of that nature is, in relative terms, infrequently sought. ... [T]his book would be a useful library addition for practitioners with a focus on equity or the resolution of disputes arising from commercial contracts, in particular. - Queensland Law Reporter - 30 March 2018 - [2018] 12 QLR
