This paper explores the recent reform of the French law of unjustified enrichment that was effected through a government decree in 2016. It analyses the provisions of both “circles” of enrichment law –recovery of undue payment and unjustified enrichment strictly so called –in their historical and comparative context, both in terms of the conditions of liability and the measure of restitutionary liability.
