In view of the absence of authority an English judge who is called upon to adjudicate in a dispute of a quasi-contractural nature, which contains a foreign element, has, it is submitted, a free hand as regards choice of law. He has it in his power to select one or other of the following tests: —
(A) The domicil either (i) of the party who is impoverished, or (ii) of the party who has been enriched.
(B) The lex loci actus, i.e., either (i) the law of the place in which the unjustifiable enrichment occurs, or (ii) the law of the place in which the transaction takes place which subsequently results in the enrichment.
(C) The proper law of the quasi-contractual obligation ascertained by means of the presumed intention of the parties and by way of analogy to the case of a contract.
(D) The lex fori, i.e., English law.
