LAW302 Equity & Trusts

This course builds on doctrines encountered in contracts, property and corporate and partnership law and assumes familiarity with them. You consider how and why equity developed; essential concepts and doctrines including fiduciary relationships and breach of confidence along with third party liability and equitable remedies. Trusts are equity's contribution to the law of property and their versatility means they remain important for estate planning, commercial and charitable purposes. You consider types of trusts, their creation and rights and obligations that follow from trusteeship.
