Alastair Hudson’s Equity and Trusts is an ideal textbook for undergraduate courses on the law of trusts and equitable remedies. It provides a clear, current and comprehensive account of the subject. The author’s enthusiasm and expertise shine through, helping to bring to life an area of the law which students often find challenging. This Ninth Edition has been extensively re-written but remains the same book in spirit as it has always been. It contains an analysis of the important decisions of the Supreme Court in FHR European Ventures v Cedar Capital, Jones v Kernott, and Williams v Central Bank of Nigeria, and the important decisions in Charity Commission v Framjee, Rawstron v Freud, Patel v Mirza, Federal Republic of Brazil v Durant, Hodkin, Novoship v Mihaylyuk, National Crime Agency v Robb, St Andrews (Cheam) Lawn Tennis Club, the after-effects of the Lehman Brothers collapse; and analysis of many other new cases besides. Equity and Trusts remains the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the law of Equity and Trusts, while still a lively and thoughtful account of the issues raised by it. This book has been cited as being authoritative in the courts of numerous countries. The ninth edition is supported by the author's website at www.alastairhudson.com with brand new resources including: • short podcasts discussing and clarifying key topics from within the book, which cover an entire course; • complete lecture recordings made specifically to accompany this book; • New video documentaries bringing to life selected key topics; • A host of other online materials and study guides new for 2016. Review of a previous edition: ‘One of the book’s great strengths is its clear exposition of some very difficult areas of the law, moving seamlessly from points that puzzle students to points that puzzle practitioners. Other strengths are the breadth of its approach, the fact that it is extremely up to date, the freshness and vividness of its approach and its willingness to place equity in a wider context . . . The student will enjoy a clear, lively and challenging account of the subject matter. The practitioner will find the book well worth consulting for its clear exposition of the basic principles and of their application in difficult areas.’ – New Law Journal.

Elder Law In Context

Elder Law in Context integrates cases, statutory materials, forms, policy and ethics to provide a well-rounded and comprehensive study of Elder Law. The book demonstrates that the law of any given practice area in reality isn't made up of discrete doctrinal areas but rather consists of interrelated and overlapping areas, and covers legal doctrine in contracts, agency, ethics, torts, constitutional law, administrative law, public law, criminal law and more, as they relate to Elder Law. This approach provides both an excellent and practical vehicle for learning Elder Law, but, by reviewing core doctrine from earlier and more foundational law school courses, it helps to prepare upper level students for the bar exam. The book provides ample opportunities for students to apply lessons, through the various problems and exercises throughout.

The law of succession rests on a single brute fact: you can't take it with you. The stock of wealth that turns over as people die is staggeringly large. In the United States alone, some $41 trillion will pass from the dead to the living in the first half of the 21st century. But the social impact of inheritance is more than a matter of money; it is also a matter of what money buys and brings about. Law and custom allow people many ways to pass on their property. As Friedman's enlightening social history reveals, a decline in formal rules, the ascendancy of will substitutes over classic wills, social changes like the rise of the family of affection, changing ideas of acceptable heirs, and the potential disappearance of the estate tax all play a large role in the balance of wealth. Dead Hands uncovers the tremendous social and legal importance of this rite of passage, and how it reflects changing values and priorities in American families and society.
