Trusts Textbook Summary

Trusts Textbook by G. Watt

"Trusts Textbook" is an accessible, approachable text designed to set out in clear and comprehensive terms the essential content of undergraduate degree courses in trusts. The nature and history of equity is also considered in detail and equitable remedies are discussed throughout the context of trusts law. The text elucidates the relationship between trusts, property, contract and restitution to enable students to map out conceptual connections between competing legal ideas. There is also a focus on modern cases in the commercial sphere to reflect the constantly changing and socially-significant role of trusts and equity. The text is supported by frequent self-assessment questions and research exercises designed to support and reinforce the student's learning experience. The web-site accompanying the text contains carefully selected extracts from primary and academic articles. It also contains guide answers to end-of-chapter summative assessments contained in the text.
