Equity and Trusts

Lionel Smith and Alexandra Popovici

This review discusses the most important and influential papers in the field of Equity and Trusts. While taking seriously the intimate and historical relationship between English Equity and the law of trusts, it also addresses new and comparative perspectives on the subject, bringing together common law and civil law, doctrinal scholarship and socio-legal analysis, historical approaches to Equity and functional ones. The review includes a wide range of authors and outlooks ranging from Frederic Maitland to recent material on fiduciary obligations and discretionary trusts, highlighting the universality of Equity as a body of law, and the nature of the Trust as a fundamental juristic institution. This literary piece promises to be a useful tool for academics captivated by this subject area.
