Description

Equity and Trusts in Australia is a practical and engaging introduction to equitable and trusts law in Australia. Drawing on the authors' collective 45 years of teaching experience, this text is carefully designed to cater to the needs of undergraduate law and Juris Doctor students approaching equity and trust law for the first time. The book provides a succinct, clear and accessible explanation of key theories and terminology in equitable and trust law and demonstrates how these are applied in practice with simple, topical examples. Comprehensively cross-referenced, it draws links between equitable and trusts doctrines and their wider relationships to the law. The companion website, at www.cambridge.edu.au/academic/equity is an invaluable resource for students and lecturers, featuring further reading, discussion points and practice exercises and solutions.show more
