Exploring Equity and Trusts supports studies of this core area of legal education in a way that will ignite interest and understanding. Combining clear explanation of the law, for a solid factual basis, with contemporary examples from society, to cultivate an understanding of the way the law is shaped every day, Exploring Equity and Trusts will develop students' personal interest and give them the academic edge. The author begins by detailing the underpinning principles of equity and of the trust concept, before exploring the major themes of the area and the interconnections between them. The book examines: the requirements of creating a trust; implied trusts; trust administration; breach of trust and remedies; charities and charitable trusts.
