In a subject that is heavily case law based, the content of Todd & Watt's Cases and Materials on Equity and Trusts provides an essential reference source for students.

The eighth edition contains an impressive range of relevant and interesting case law, 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 rigorous scholarship with a student-focused approach in his choice of materials and his associated commentary. The book uses key features as tools to assist students' learning and revision, including questions, suggestions for further reading, and notes.
