Equity and Trusts (Hardback)Alastair Hudson (author)
- Not available
Alastair Hudson's Equity and Trusts is an ideal textbook for undergraduate courses on the law of trusts and equitable remedies. It provides a clear, current and comprehensive account of the subject through which the author's enthusiasm and expertise shine through, helping to bring to life an area of the law which students often find difficult.
Beginning with the core principles, Alastair Hudson reinforces the key points by means of clear examples throughout each chapter, helping students to build and develop their own knowledge of equity and trusts. A set of lively, discursive essays reflecting on the law then begin to outline the broader political, social and economic context of the subject and encourage the reader to begin to engage with their own critical analysis.
The eighth edition of Equity and Trusts will be edited and updated to include discussion of the key developments in the subject since publication of the seventh edition in 2012, including the latest case law and potential for regulation relating to cohabitation and shared ownership as well as cases arising in the light of the enforcement of the Charities Act 2006.

Review of a previous edition:
`One of the book's great strengths is its clear exposition of some very difficult areas of the law, moving seamlessly from points that puzzle students to points that puzzle practitioners. Other strengths are the breadth of 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 a 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 their application in difficult areas.' - New Law Journal.
"In an erudite and clear-eyed scrutiny of equity and trusts, author Alistair Hudson, one of the acknowledged experts in this field, has obviously committed himself to shining a new light of understanding into a subject that many tend to consider dense, murky and complicated. The result, as the author explains, is a comprehensive analysis of both equity and the law of trusts suitable for undergraduate and post-graduates courses. It is also widely used by legal practitioners and has been cited in the courts of several jurisdictions." - Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
