Equity and Trusts

Module code: LW2370

When a person wishes to benefit others, whether they are individuals, charities or simply 'causes', he or she may use the machinery of a 'trust'. In this module you will look at the making and breaking of trusts, and at the position and duties of trustees. Some of the topics covered will be:

  • The nature of the equitable jurisdiction and its continuing impact upon English law, with reference to discrete several different areas of law
  • Requirements for creating a valid trust, along with the trustee's duties
  • What can be done when things go wrong, and there are disputes
  • Situations in which trusts occur informally and how the law governs these areas
