Written in a fresh and lively style and supported by a strong analytical framework, the sixth edition of Pearce & Stevens' Trusts and Equitable Obligations continues to provide students with a relevant and exciting examination of a subject that can seem remote and difficult.

The authors take a modern and conceptual approach to the wide array of topics covered in undergraduate equity and trusts modules, helping students explore the many ways trusts impact on every day life and in the world of finance and commerce.

The text is accessible without compromising detailed critical comment, and engages with key issues such as the protection of privacy, enforcing informal promises, trusts and the family home, and assessing public interest in charities.
