Equity and Trusts provides a thorough but accessible statement and analysis of the principles of equity, the law of trusts and equitable remedies. An understanding of fundamental principles is fostered through engaging discussion of case law, with boxed case summaries to assist in identifying key cases.

The fourth edition has been fully revised and consolidated to include recent developments in case law and legislation, including discussion on:

  • charitable trusts in the light of the Charities Act 2013 (Cth)

  • Andrews v ANZ Banking Group Ltd (HCA - 2012) and Paciocco v ANZ Banking Group Ltd (FCA – 2015) on the law of penalties

  • HIH Claims Support Ltd v Insurance Aust Ltd (HCA - 2011) and Lavin v Toppi (HCA - 2015) on the law of contribution, particularly co-ordinate liability

  • Re Dion Investments (NSWCA - 2014) on limits on court power to authorise amendments of trust deeds

  • Federal Republic of Brazil v Durant International Corp (UKPC - 2015) on doctrine of tracing

  • Australian Financial Services & Leasing Pty Ltd v Hills Industries Ltd (HCA - 2014) on defence of change of position to claim for restitution of moneys paid under mistake

  • Sidhu v Van Dyke (HCA - 2014) on proprietary estoppel

  • Bofinger v Kingsway Group Ltd (HCA - 2009) on the doctrines of subrogation and unjust enrichment in Australia

The clear explanations of the meaning and practical application of the principles of equity and trusts in Australian law make the book ideal for students and an authoritative and reliable reference for practitioners.
