The sixth edition of Trusts and Equity builds on the popularity of previous editions by continuing to provide detailed and lively analysis of an area of law traditionally found difficult.

An academically rigorous text, yet highly readable, each chapter introduces and summarizes key concepts, encouraging you to appreciate the scope and boundaries of a topic before engaging with the detail.

By drawing on his expertise in teaching, writing, and research, Gary Watt brings the subject to life with useful analogies and memorable references to history and the cultural context of the law. The book helps you to actively engage with the subject and to think critically about its central issues. While some textbooks are set out like encyclopaedias, Trusts and Equity is designed to be read cover to cover, like a series of stimulating lectures.
