Contemporary Perspectives on Property, Equity and Trust Law by Prof. Martin Dixon

Contemporary Perspectives on Property, Equity and Trust Law


Contemporary Perspectives on Property, Equity and Trust Law by Prof. Martin Dixon

This work counters the common perception that equity and trusts is a static area of law. The essays, written by leading academics and well established practitioners of the field, demonstrate both that the area is vibrant with new legislation and case law and show the value of reconsidering familiar topics in the light of new developments. The scope of the book is wide ranging, covering equity, trusts and property and is divided into two main sections: the law of real property, and the law of equity and trusts. In Part One, a variety of topics surrounding the law of real property are discussed: from unconscionability, and the protection of third party interests, to property, marriage and ownership, and the impact of equality law on landlord and tenant regulations. Part Two focuses on the regulation of trusts and trustees and the impact of new legislation on charities such as hospitals and schools.
