Trusts Textbook is an accessible text that sets out in clear and comprehensive terms the essential content of undergraduate degree courses in trusts. The nature and history of equity is also considered in detail and equitable remedies are discussed throughout the context of trusts law. The text elucidates the relationship between trusts, property, contract and restitution to enable students to map out conceptual connections between competing legal ideas. There is also a focus on modern cases in the commercial sphere to reflect the constantly changing and socially-significant role of trusts and equity. A number of features are used throughout the book to enable the students to work interactively with the text, allowing them to test their knowledge and check their understanding of the law. These features include self-assesssment questions and exercises, chapter summaries, diagrams and guides to further reading. A glossary of key terms is also included.
