Equity and Trusts
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 challenging. Fully updated and revised, this Seventh Edition contains an analysis of Jones v Kernott and trusts of homes; a new treatment of dishonest assistance and unconscionable receipt; a full treatment of the law on super-injunctions; coverage of all of the trusts law cases precipitated by the collapse of Lehman Brothers; a reflection on women and equity, and the politics of trusts law; a new treatment of the Hastings-Bass principle; and analysis of over 200 new cases and the Perpetuities and Accumulations Act 2009. Equity and Trusts remains the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the law of Equity and Trusts, while still a lively and thoughtful account of the issues raised by it. This book has been cited as being authoritative in the courts of numerous countries. The seventh edition is supported by a companion website which includes: * over 50 short podcast lectures by the author discussing and clarifying key topics from within the book, which cover an entire course; * a set of brief video documentaries filmed on location which provide context and bring to life selected key topics; * a brief introductory video presentation from the author introducing the viewer to the subject of Equity and Trusts and to the book in particular.
