About the Authors
  • This latest edition of Moffat's Trusts Law has been fully revised and updated to cover recent statutory developments and explores the impact of a wealth of new cases including the Supreme Court decisions in Pitt v. Holt (2013), FHR European Ventures v. Cedar Capital Partners (2014) and Williams v. Central Bank of Nigeria (2014). It has been restructured to incorporate a new chapter on the internationalisation of the trust which provides an understanding of the new directions being taken in the areas of trust law and equitable remedies. Supplementary material includes an online chapter on occupational pension schemes. With suggestions for further reading guiding the student to contemporary debates, this leading textbook retains its hallmark combination of a contextualized approach and a commercial focus, and remains the serious student's textbook of choice.

    • Restructured to include a new chapter on internationalisation of the trust and an online chapter on occupational pension schemes

    'No other text comes close to providing such a range of useful materials. A unique and valuable resource.' Charlie Webb, London School of Economics and Political Science

    'Clearly written and accessible, Moffat's Trusts Law is a comprehensive, fully up to date and engaging text. It certainly helps my students understand the complexities of trusts and equity.' Andy Hayward, University of Durham

    '… a tour de force. It ranges effortlessly from the practical to the inquiring and critical, confidently navigating through the thickets of trusts law, its origins and contemporary functions. The controversies are presented in a lively and readable style and the chapters are replete with scholarly and thought provoking perspectives. For the reader who seeks not only to know the law but also to understand it, this book is ideal: every page contains a pearl.' Simon Cooper, Oxford Brookes University
