This brand new collection from one of the leading names in Equity and Trusts scholarship combines carefully selected extracts from both primary sources and secondary literature with clear explanations of the law and thoughtful guiding commentary. Alastair Hudson’s lively and engaging style helps students navigate their way through the leading cases, judgments and legislation and to critically engage with points of academic debate and policy review.

The book identifies and develops the major prevailing themes within Equity and Trusts, focusing on financial and commercial issues surrounding fiduciary parties; the burgeoning case law centred around trusts and the family home following the Court of Appeal’s decision in Jones v Kernott [2011]; and case law arising from the Charities Acts of 2006 and 2011. These themes are considered and tied together at the end of the book.

Each chapter contains:

  • A clear introductory summary of the principles and the issues relating to each topic
  • Extracts from the leading cases, with "endnotes" in the extracts to pull out key ideas
  • Extracts from dissenting opinions, together with links between extracts and the journal literature and policy documents
  • Problem questions with skeleton model answers
  • Thematic summaries and cross-references to facilitate essay-writing
Supported by a full range of podcasts and video as well as links to Alastair Hudson’s online teaching materials, Text, Cases and Materials on Equity and Trusts really is the complete teaching and learning resource for this complex and often challenging course.
