‘Morality has no role in the law relating to equitable remedies.’ Discuss this statement with reference to specific performance

‘Morality has no role in the law relating to equitable remedies.’

Discuss this statement with reference to specific performance and/or injunctions.

To complete Part 1, you will need to draw on knowledge gained from Unit 2 and Chapters 23 (on specific performance) and/or 24 (on injunctions) of the module textbook (4th edition, Oxford University Press, 2020). You may also draw on your knowledge gained from Unit 1. You need not agree or disagree with the statement. If you agree or disagree, in whole or in part, try to explain why and how you have reached your conclusion.

The essay requires you to identify the relevant law, identify and analyse key principles of case law, and comprehensively describe those principles in a short essay. The essay should include an introduction, a main body of discussion and a conclusion, with referencing completed in accordance with university guidance. Use all the 1000 words available to you to ensure a well-reasoned, succinct, coherent, well-structured and readable essay. A set of bullet points will not be acceptable.

The essay task requires some explanation of the law, which is likely to be descriiptive. You should also aim to go beyond mere descriiption to include, where possible, critical analysis of equitable remedies as they apply within the context of the provided statement. At every stage of W302 you must demonstrate the skills of an independent learner and researcher, which means not simply describing the ‘how’ of the law but also the ‘why’.

You have a small number of words for the essay so must think carefully about how you plan to integrate and balance your own research with material from the unit and the textbook. The difference between a satisfactory, good, and excellent essay will turn on the quality of this plan, your argument and your conclusions. To achieve high marks you must do more than rephrase or repeat what you have read in the unit or the textbook. The essay must reflect your voice, thinking and interpretation of the question. Plagiarism is never acceptable.
