Jacobs’ Law of Trusts in Australia 8th edition is an authoritative work responding to developments of trust law over the last decade in all Australian jurisdictions.

There are chapters on the important areas of superannuation and choice of law. The balance of chapters have been substantially rewritten to reflect the decisions and statutes of the last ten years, with particular attention to the areas of charitable, resulting and constructive trusts; the duties and liabilities of trustees; and tracing trust property.

This text provides practitioners, law students and academics with a comprehensive and clearly presented account of the law.
