With its unique contextual emphasis and authoritative commentary, Trusts Law: Text and Materials is a book that no serious undergraduate on trust law courses can afford to be without. The book is divided into four main parts: trusts and the preservation of family wealth; trusts and family breakdown; trusts and commerce; and trusts and non-profit activity. Within each of these parts, leading cases, statutes, and historical and research materials are placed alongside the narrative of the author's text to give emphasis both to general theories of trust concepts and to the practical operation of trusts. Attention is also given to important themes such as the developing relationship between trusts law and other areas of private law such as the Law of Restitution. This new edition takes account of all relevant judicial and legislative developments since the third edition, and expands discussion of key themes in current developments of the law.

The reception of the trust in civil law jurisdictions has generated considerable conceptual debate internationally and in East Asia. In Trust Law in Asian Civil Law Jurisdictions, the authors: • provide a detailed comparative examination of trusts laws in Asian civil law jurisdictions from both operational and theoretical perspectives; • discuss the reception of the trust laws in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and China and the challenges facing them; • engage in in-depth comparative inquiries as to how these Asian legal systems resolve questions pertaining to the trust; and • evaluate the distinctive features of Asian trusts and how they are moulded to suit the civilian legal frameworks within which they are situated. The analysis intersects with the Trento trust project in Europe, but also differs from it by providing valuable perspectives of the 'Asian' approaches to trusts researchers in Asia and the Anglophone world at large.

Modern International Developments in Trust Law

Author: David J. Hayton

Publisher: N.A

Page: 346

This book is concerned with the development of the trust idea in common law jurisdictions, whether mainland or offshore, and in civil law jurisdictions. While trusts are important for preserving family wealth and influence, over ninety per cent of the value of trust funds is found in commercial or financial trusts, about which little has been written. It is interest in the latter type of trust that is likely to lead to the development of the trust idea in European mainland jurisdictions, especially as the economic destinies of European jurisdictions become increasingly intertwined and as the Hague Convention on the Recognition of Trusts comes to be implemented. In this volume the work of leading trust scholars in Canada, England, the USA, Germany and Japan is brought together to explore key issues in trust law, until now not covered in any single resource: the full elasticity of the trust concept; the variety and significance of commercial or financial trusts; the scope for reforming trust law in various jurisdictions to make it more economically efficient in assisting in the preservation and generation of wealth; the potential for the development of a core trust concept in civil law jurisdictions as a special part of the law of obligations, without any need to create equitable proprietary interests in favour of beneficiaries. Modern International Developments in Trust Law will be of interest not only to academic trust lawyers and comparative lawyers, but to common law and civil law practitioners, whether interested in taking advantage of foreign trust laws, or in developing in their local jurisdictions new ideas obtained from foreign jurisdictions.

Trusts Law in Australia, now in its third edition, provides a comprehensive and scholarly analysis of modern trusts law. The structure is unchanged from previous editions and the 12 chapters cover all the topics expected of a book on the law of trusts – express trusts, charitable trusts, voluntary trusts, resulting trusts, constructive trusts, writing and related requirements, the rules against perpetuities and accumulations, life tenants, remaindermen, tracing, and the duties, liabilities, powers, rights, appointments, retirement and removal of trustees. Professor Denis Ong’s invaluable and important analysis addresses conceptual anomalies in the law, and interprets and critiques a large number of judicial decisions. Each chapter finishes with a summary of relevant legal principles, making the book unusually accessible. Since the publication of the second edition in 2003, a number of significant cases have been decided in the area of trusts: On the subject of writing requirements, the following cases have appeared: Theodore v Mistford Pty Ltd (2005) 221 CLR 612; Halloran v Minister Administering National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 (2006) 80 ALJR 519; and Khoury v Khouri (2006) 66 NSWLR 241. Blackett v Darcy (2005) 62 NSWLR 392 has refined the Principle in Strong v Bird (1874) LR 18 Eq 315. Thirdly, the court’s power to authorise expedient decisions, conferred under s81 of the Trustee Act 1925 (NSW), was analysed in Arakella Pty Ltd v Paton (2004) 60 NSWLR 334. In the area of proprietary estoppel there are the two not immediately reconcilable decisions in Sullivan v Sullivan [2006] NSWCA 312 and Donis v Donis [2007] VSCA 89. Most importantly, in the areas of liability commonly called knowing assistance and knowing receipt, the High Court has handed down its decision in Farah Constructions Pty Ltd v Say-Dee Pty Ltd [2007] HCA 22.
