Key Cases: Equity & Trusts Reviews

"Hodder is pitching to provide all student needs from the one stable
... Clear and consistent format, style and explanations will be valued
by most students ... The Key Cases books almost stand better than mere
revision aids, but ultimately their length really makes them just this
unless a student does use them as a point to identify issues to follow
up elsewhere."

Christopher Gale, The Law Teacher (about the series as a whole)
