The Law of Trusts and Equitable Obligations provides students with a detailed and stimulating account of the law of equity and trusts. It offers comprehensive analysis of topics covered on equity and trusts modules on undergraduate law degrees. The fifth edition has been thoroughly updated by Warren Barr, lecturer at the University of Liverpool and Law Teacher of the Year 2006 in collaboration with Robert Pearce and John Stevens. The introductory section has been restructured to reflect changes in modern teaching of the subject and recent case law. A new chapter on Trusts of the Family Home has been added together with an revised and expanded chapter on charities. In addition to these substantive changes to content, the author has added a glossary of terms to aid understanding of key definitions and terminology. Written in a fresh and lively style and supported by a strong analytical framework, the fifth edition of the Law of Trusts & Equitable Obligations continues the tradition of previous editions by providing students with a relevant and exciting examination of the Law of equity and trusts.
