Praise for the 3rd Edition; 'Any textbook on English law that quotes Aristotle and discusses chaos theory is likely to contain an interesting approach. Equity and Trusts does not disappoint... One of the distinguishable features of the book is the readiness of the author to discuss equitable principles in their wider historical, economic, philosophical and political context...One of the books great strengths is its clear exposition of some very difficult areas of law, moving seamlessly from points that puzzle students to points that puzzle practitioners. Other strengths are the breadth or its approach, the fact that it is extremely up to date, the freshness and vividness of its approach and its willingness to place equity in wider context...The student will enjoy a clear, lively and challenging account of the subject matter. The practitioner will find the book well worth consulting for its clear exposition of the basic principles and of the application in difficult areas. New Law Journal, George Duncan, Charles Russell Solicitors, January 2004.
"Equity Trusts" has quickly established itself as a market leader due to it clarity, insight and accessibility in what is perhaps the most complex of legal areas. Hudson's scholarly account of the subject makes this text sufficiently authoritative for trust practitioners but also provides a comprehensible introduction for a student audience. As in previous editions, the traditional doctrines are analysed in the context of current issues, and the book's progressive approach intersperses discussion of the core ideas with clear examples. This fourth edition has been extensively rewritten and includes new chapters on: understanding the trust; certainty in the creation of express trusts; the rights of beneficiaries and the beneficiary principle, formalities in the creation of express trusts, constructive trusts; breach of trust; and miscellaneous equitable remedies. Individual essays on the nature of express trusts, the law on fiduciaries, family law, human rights law and equity draw together the main principles while examining related questions of restitution and social justice. This book is essential reading for all those seeking a modern approach to this crucial area of law.See all Product description
