Written in a fresh and lively style and supported by a strong analytical framework, the sixth edition of Pearce & Stevens' Trusts and Equitable Obligations continues to provide students with a relevant and exciting examination of a subject that can seem remote and difficult. Revised diagrams and flow charts help to explain difficult topics such as the operation of the pari passu, first in, first out, and rolling charge methods of allocating funds between contributors and the circumstances in which strangers can be held personally liable as dishonest accessories to or knowing recipients of trust property in breach of trust. The authors take a modern and conceptual approach to the wide array of topics covered in undergraduate equity and trusts modules, helping students explore the many ways trusts impact on everyday life and in the world of finance and commerce. The text is accessible without compromising detailed critical comment, and engages with key issues such as the protection of privacy, enforcing informal promises, trusts and the family home, and assessing public interest in charities. Extensive rewriting has enabled the incorporation of substantial new material without an increase in the overall length of the book.

Resulting Trusts

Author: Robert Chambers
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0198764448
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Law

The resulting trust has received little attention in recent years and this may be because, until relatively recently, the law relating to resulting trusts was thought to be settled and uncontroversial. Most of the current academic writing about resulting trusts is found in the established textbooks on equity and trusts, but these tend to provide little more than catalogues of the situations in which resulting trusts arise. There is, however, very little consensus on the principle by which the resulting trust operates, including the fundamental question whether it arises by opertaion of law or depends on the presumed intention to create a trust. This book examines the true nature of the resulting trust and the question whether the trusts brought into being to reverse unjust enrichment should not include resulting trusts. It then considers whether, when resulting trusts are properly understood, it does turn out that it is through the resulting trust that equity makes its principle contribution to reversing unjust enrichment. This book examines principally the case law of the UK, Canada and Australia, and it also makes reference to the views of academic commentators as found in the standard texts and law journals.

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.
