Now in its twelfth edition, Todd & Wilson's Textbook on Trusts & Equity continues to strike the balance between introductory and more challenging texts.

Carefully written with the student in mind, the text provides an accessible, yet intellectually stimulating, introduction to the subject. Sarah Wilson excels at writing in a clear and enthusiastic way, enlightening the more complex issues of trusts law without undue simplifications.

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 related commercial settings. Todd & Wilson's Textbook on Trusts & 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.

  • Clearly written and including reference to a wealth of further resources, this book succeeds in being both a highly accessible and stimulating introduction to the subject
  • Offers a unique perspective on trusts in a commercial context
  • An accompanying Online Resource Centre offers a range of valuable tools and information designed to promote further learning and assist with revision.
