Landmark Cases in Equity

Edited by: Charles Mitchell, Paul Mitchell

Now available in paperback, this book contains essays on landmark UK cases in the development of equitable doctrine, running from the 17th century to recent times. The range, breadth, and social importance of equitable principles are well known, as these affect commercial, domestic, and even political matters. By focusing on the historical development of these principles, the essays help the reader to understand them more clearly, and also provide insights into the processes of legal change through judicial innovation. The themes addressed include: the nature of the UK courts' equitable jurisdiction * the development of UK property rights in equity * constraints on the powers of settlors to create express trusts * the duties of trustees and other fiduciaries * remedies for breach of these duties * the evolution of constructive and resulting trusts.
