Principles of the Law of Equity and Trusts in Ireland is an accessible student focused text providing a comprehensive discussion of the law relating to equitable remedies and trusts. Written in a clear and concise manner, each chapter provides the reader with the key principles, referring to decided case law and engages with academic debates.
Divided into two main parts, part one ‘Equity’ outlines the history and development of equity as a body of law before delving into the application of the equitable remedies. Part two, ‘The Trust’, examines the history and origin of the trust as an equitable remedy and charts its expansion. It examines the creation and validity of different types of trusts and their administration.
In Principles of the Law of Equity and Trusts in Ireland the author draws on her experience in teaching this topic in both Ireland and England at undergraduate and post graduate levels to bring together a text which is intelligible and user friendly.
