Now in its eleventh edition Todd & Wilson's Textbook on Trusts continues to strike the balance between introductory and more challenging texts. Carefully and skilfully written it is an accessible text providing 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 undue simplifications. 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 critically engage with the material through the real-life examples, key scholarship and current contextual and theoretical perspectives. Todd & Wilson's Textbook on Trusts 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.
