The book is structured to reflect the content of a typical LLB course, and offers in-depth coverage of trusts law. Students are encouraged to critically engage with the material through real-life examples, key scholarship and current contextual and theoretical perspectives, including relatedcommercial settings. Todd and Wilson's Textbook on Trusts and Equity engages with wider considerations, drawn from trusts scholarship and beyond, to provide an analysis of the subject which is not only rounded, but also designed to be stimulating and revelatory. Rigorously revised every two years,this book can be relied upon as one of the most up-to-date trusts texts available.
