Did you hear that equity and trusts law is boring and old-fashioned? Equity and Trusts Law Directions is a lively and engaging text that challenges such preconceptions. The text is written in an informal, engaging and lively manner with an emphasis on explaining the key topics covered on equity and trusts courses with clarity. Gary Watt draws on varied sources to demonstrate how equity and trusts law applies to the world around us including news items and extracts from artistic, including literary, works. The substantive content of the text is designed to emphasize the relationship between equity, trusts, property, contract, and restitution to enable you to map out connections between related 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. A number of learning features are used throughout the text encouraging you to engage with the subject-matter, test your knowledge and check your understanding of the law. These features include self-assessment questions and exercises, chapter summaries, diagrams, and guides to further reading.
