The title was changed from Principles of the Law of Trusts in April 2010. The reputation of the authors as foremost authorities in this area is evidenced by the number of times their work has been cited in cases. Their robust treatment of “trusts” makes it the essential guide to all major topics in this area.

Detailed attention is paid to the underlying general principles and the impact of recent developments in trust law. It also offers a general and comparative view of trusts legislation in all Australian jurisdictions and assists in interpreting the meaning of comparative Acts in the local jurisdiction.

  • Trustee Act 1925 (ACT)
  • Trustee Act 1925 (NSW) now amended by the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2011(NSW) and Charitable Trusts Act 1939 (NSW)
  • Trustee Act 1958 (Vic) and Charities Act 1978 (Vic)
  • Trustee Act 1973 (Qld) and Charitable Funds Act 1958 (Qld)
  • Trustee Act 1936 (SA)
  • Trustee Act 1962 (WA) and Charitable Trusts Act 1962 (WA)
  • Trustee Act 1898 (Tas) and Variation of Trusts Act 1994 (Tas)
  • Trustee Act (NT)
  • Trustee Act 1956 (NZ)
Trusts (Hague Convention) Act 1991 (Cth) is also included in the service because of its relevance to conflict of laws and private international laws with respect to trusts. Comparative reference is made to the Trustee Act 1925 and the Trustee Act 2000 of the United Kingdom and the Uniform Trust Code of the United States.

The benefit of the standalone Legislation Volume is that the cross-references from the provisions of the legislation are to the commentary and analysis related to the provision. As there are two considerable chapters on "Charities" in the service, Charitable Trusts Acts was introduced and uses this same method of cross-referencing.

A comparative table with cross-referencing the provisions of all Australian trusts and trustee legislation and that of New Zealand and the UK has also been added.

The Case Digest is sourced from the Thomson Reuters Australian Legal Monthly Digest which provides an easy reference to important cases cited in the service.

Approximately 10 updates per year.
