The aim of Understanding Equity Trusts Law is to discuss all of the major issues covered by trusts law courses. It is written by someone who has a real enthusiasm for the subject. The book has a thesis: that trusts are part of equity's general remit to counter-balance the rigour of the common law. As such,trust law is concerned with policing the conscience of the trustee, whether in express trusts, resulting trusts or constructive trusts. These ideas are considered in the context of significant social questions such as the nature of commercial transactions, pensions and welfare provision, and rights in the family home. Each of these discussions highlights the principles on which the law operates.
