Unlike other textbooks on trust law, this book provides an easy, approachable way of learning about the complex principles of trust law.

Organized in a logical and incremental fashion so as to not overwhelm readers with exhaustive detail; rather, it gives readers a complete picture of the principles of trust law, enabling them to have an intuitive grasp of key concepts and doctrines.

Written for law students and practitioners alike, the book takes an otherwise difficult and complex subject, and makes it accessible and easy to understand. This book is recommended reading for any law student learning about trusts, as well as for any lawyer who handles trust law as part of his or her practice.

Book Features:-

  • Complete with flowcharts and diagrams to improve readability and allow for clearer understanding of the subject matter
  • Useful exercises to guide readers through the analysis of the law
  • Each chapter begins with a list of topics to be covered in that chapter
  • A "check list" at the end of each chapter helps readers confirm their understanding of the topic
