In a subject heavily reliant on the specifics of case law, Cases and Materials on Equity and Trusts provides an essential reference source for students. The tenth edition contains a diverse range of relevant and interesting cases, statutory material, academic writing, and official proposals for law reform. Where appropriate, legal materials are accompanied by non-legal literary texts with a view to making legal points more interesting and memorable.

Gary Watt continues to combine the highly-regarded, rigorous scholarship and student-focused approach established through previous editions in his expertly-selected choice of materials and commentary. Utilizing key features as tools to assist students' learning and revision, including questions, suggestions for further reading, and notes, Gary Watt threads the broad spectrum of equity case law together with his unique flair, making it an engaging and insightful companion to a course in trusts.
