Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review of a previous edition:

‘One of the book’s great strengths is its clear exposition of some very difficult areas of the law, moving seamlessly from points that puzzle students to points that puzzle practitioners. Other strengths are the breadth of its approach, the fact that it is extremely up to date, the freshness and vividness of its approach and its willingness to place equity in a wider context. The student will enjoy a clear, lively and challenging account of the subject matter. The practitioner will find the book well worth consulting for its clear exposition of the basic principles and of their application in difficult areas.’ – New Law Journal.

"In an erudite and clear-eyed scrutiny of equity and trusts, author Alistair Hudson, one of the acknowledged experts in this field, has obviously committed himself to shining a new light of understanding into a subject that many tend to consider dense, murky and complicated. The result, as the author explains, is a comprehensive analysis of both equity and the law of trusts suitable for undergraduate and post-graduates courses. It is also widely used by legal practitioners and has been cited in the courts of several jurisdictions." - Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
