"I'm very pleased with this textbook. I feel the authors have identified a significant gap in the teaching of law generally, namely that students are being required to apply rules without any real understanding of why the rules exist, how they can change, and how they are re-evaluated in the light of similar circumstances, but circumstances where a different outcome may be justified. Accordingly, pointing this out is a very valuable technique to helping people understand the law on this area. Also, there is a tendency for textbooks to focus on how much law they can cram in, and a tendency also for lecturers to consider this to be advantageous. However, Webb and Akkouh's focus, possibly the advantage of the authors' combination of practice and academic backgrounds, emphasises the importance of how flexible the law is, and how different viewpoints may be expressed, albeit with supporting authorities". - Dr Catrin Fflur Huws, Aberystwyth University
Trusts Law is a clear and concise text aimed at first time students of equity and trusts, covering all topics typically included in courses by providing an account both of the case law and also the main academic debates on which exam questions often focus. The authors have provided useful insights and new perspectives on a complex subject.
"Trusts Law" is a breath of fresh air for the literature, being well-written and concise yet insightful in its discussion of the major components of undergraduate study of trusts and equity.
