The new edition features increased pedagogical support to outline key points and principles and improve navigation; 'notes' to encourage students to reflect on areas of complexity or controversy; and, self-test questions to consolidate learning at the end of each chapter.New to this edition: is a detailed examination of The Civil Partnership Act 2004 and the Charities Act 2006 important case law developments such as "Stack v Dowden" (constructive trusts and family assets), "Oxley v Hiscock" (quantification of family assets), "Barlow Clowes v Eurotrust" (review of the test for dishonesty), "Abou-Ramah v Abacha" (dishonest assistance and change of position defence), "AG for Zambia v Meer Care and Desai" (review of the test for dishonesty), Horley Town Football Club (gifts to unincorporated association), Re Loftus (defences of limitation, estoppel and laches), "Templeton Insurance v Penningtons Solicitors" (Quistclose trust and damages) and many more are new chapters on the equitable remedies of specific performance, injunctions, rectification, rescission and account are extracts from the Law Commission's Reports and consultation papers on 'Sharing Homes' and 'Trustee Exemption Clauses' as well as key academic literature and debates. The structure and style of previous editions have been retained, with an emphasis on introductory text and case extracts of sufficient length to allow students to develop analytical and critical skills in reading legal judgments. Substantial author commentary helps the text give the flow, coherence and direction of a textbook whilst providing the reader with a wide range of primary and secondary material from a variety of sources.
