Private Law in a Changing World honours the work of Professor Danie Visser and celebrates his return to research after almost a decade as Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town. It considers the ways in which the law of obligations has evolved in response to external forces in both the recent and remote past – or, to switch perspectives, the high degree of internal coherence and continuity which it has maintained over time despite the operation of such forces. Leading scholars of legal history and private law from six jurisdictions consider topics drawn from across the law of contract, delict/tort and unjust/unjustified enrichment. Their insights shed light on contemporary debates around the world regarding the value of doctrinal scholarship, and on the debates regarding the decolonisation of private law currently unfolding in South Africa.

Private Law in a Changing World is also available in hard cover as Acta Juridica 2019.
