Description

Now in its tenth edition, Todd & Wilson's Textbook on Trusts continues to strike the balance between introductory texts and more challenging texts. It has been carefully and skilfully written to give an intellectually stimulating introduction to the subject. Sarah Wilson excels at writing for students in a clear and enthusiastic way, enlightening the more complex issues of trusts law without oversimplification. The book is structured to reflect the content of a typical LLB course and offers in-depth coverage of trusts law. Students are encouraged to engage critically with the material through the real-life examples, key scholarship and consideration of current contextual and theoretical perspectives. It engages with wider considerations, drawn from trusts scholarship and beyond, to provide an analysis of the subject which is not only rounded, but also designed to be stimulating and revelatory. Rigorously revised every two years, this book can be relied upon as one of the most up-to-date trusts texts available. Online Resource Centre The accompanying Online Resource Centre offers a range of valuable tools to help further learning and revision, including regular case and legislation updates, exam-style questions and answer guidance, links to key websites, and summaries of selected further reading.
