In Principles of Australian Equity and Trusts: Cases and Materials the authors draw together the key cases and materials relating to equity and trusts to illustrate the reasoning processes of the court and the development of legal principles.

Cases are carefully selected, edited and cross-referenced to the companion textbook, Principles of Australian Equity and Trusts, to promote a deep understanding of the subject. Both books follow the same chapter order and structure, making it easy to use them in tandem.

In the second, fully revised edition of this cases and materials text, the discussion of the key concepts has been extended, putting the case extracts into their legal context. Helpful analysis of each extract will assist readers to understand why a particular case is important and the principle to be drawn from the decision. Additional cases have been included to ensure alignment with current teaching in equity and trusts.

The new edition has also been restyled to provide easy navigation and clear differentiation between commentary and case extracts.

Principles of Australian Equity and Trusts: Cases and Materials and its companion textbook Principles of Australian Equity and Trusts combine to make an ideal resource for students of equity and trusts, practitioners and anyone wishing to understand this complex area of law.
