This chapter assesses Alan Rodger's contribution to the Scots law of unjustified enrichment. It focuses on Dollar Land (Cumbernauld) v CIN Properties Ltd. The case was appealed twice to the House of Lords but has not been widely commented upon probably because, as decided, it does not concern unjustified enrichment but rather affirms the well-known rule that an enrichment claim is excluded by the express terms of a contract. The case is significant because when the appeal was before the Court of Session for the second time (1996) Lord Rodger of Earlsferry gave a dissenting opinion. He remained in a minority of one in favour of allowing a claim of unjustified enrichment; the majority, at all stages in the appeal, was not.

Keywords:   Alan Rodger, unjustified enrichment, Scots law, dissenting opinion, judgment
