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.

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.

The Cambridge Handbook of the Law of the Sharing Economy

Author: John J. Infranca

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1108266207

Category: Law

Page: N.A

View: 3328

This Handbook grapples conceptually and practically with what the sharing economy - which includes entities ranging from large for-profit firms like Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Taskrabbit, and Upwork to smaller, non-profit collaborative initiatives - means for law, and how law, in turn, is shaping critical aspects of the sharing economy. Featuring a diverse set of contributors from many academic disciplines and countries, the book compiles the most important, up-to-date research on the regulation of the sharing economy. The first part surveys the nature of the sharing economy, explores the central challenge of balancing innovation and regulatory concerns, and examines the institutions confronting these regulatory challenges, and the second part turns to a series of specific regulatory domains, including labor and employment law, consumer protection, tax, and civil rights. This groundbreaking work should be read by anyone interested in the dynamic relationship between law and the sharing economy.

Land Law

Author: Ben McFarlane,Nicholas Hopkins,Sarah Nield

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0198735324

Category: Land tenure

Page: 444

View: 8422

McFarlane, Hopkins, and Nield's Land Law is the most succinct, analytical textbook available in this subject area. These experienced and respected authors have used their unique approach to land law to provide a consistent structure with which students and lecturers can tackle the topics. The approach arms students with the tools needed to analyse content covered in classes and exams autonomously by demonstrating how to consider rules in isolation before looking at the full picture. This method helps students make links across topics. The concise treatment allows students to concentrate on building an in-depth, sophisticated grasp of the core principles. The authors' direct writing style and contextual outlook guides readers through the depth and detail and gives lucidity to abstract rules. The use of significant cases to exemplify rules in practice and diagrams for visual learners gives additional clarity to concepts that are particularly difficult to imagine. Students are encouraged to test their knowledge by answering end-of-chapter questions and to widen their research by referring to the resources suggested in the further reading lists accompanying each chapter. Web links to online sources are hosted on the Online Resource Centre. Legal updates are also available on this website.

Gifts

A Study in Comparative Law

Author: Richard Hyland

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199711097

Category: Law

Page: 730

View: 5473

Gifts: A Study in Comparative Law is the first broad-based study of the law governing the giving and revocation of gifts ever attempted. Gift-giving is everywhere governed by social and customary norms before it encounters the law and the giving of gifts takes place largely outside of the marketplace. As a result of these two characteristics, the law of gifts provides an optimal lens through which to examine how different legal systems engage with social practice. The law of gifts is well-developed both in the civil and the common laws. Richard Hyland's study provides an excellent view of the ways in which different civil and common law jurisdictions confront common issues. The legal systems discussed include principally, in the common law, those of Great Britain, the United States, and India, and, in the civil law, the private law systems of Belgium and France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. Professor Hyland also serves a critique of the dominant method in the field, which is a form of functionalism based on what is called the praesumptio similitudinis, namely the axiom that, once legal doctrine is stripped away, developed legal systems tend to reach similar practical results. His study demonstrates, to the contrary, that legal systems actually differ, not only in their approach and conceptual structure, but just as much in the results.

TrustWorthy: New Angles on Trusts from Beneficiaries and Trustees

A Positive Story Project Showcasing Beneficiaries and Trustees

Author: Hartley Goldstone,Kathy Wiseman,James E. Hughes, Jr.

Publisher: Createspace Independent Pub

Page: 146

TrustWorthy is a collection of 25 personal -- and positive -- stories told by beneficiaries, trustees and their advisors. The book speaks to the human side of personal trusts, leaving the technical side (legal, tax, investments) to others. The book's objective? To begin to transform the most complex, conflicted and difficult relationship known under the law -- the "arranged marriage" between beneficiary and trustee -- by supplanting prevailing negative assumptions and behaviors. Readers are given a peek at "what other families do." Storytellers tackle big questions, for example: How can trusts be used to promote beneficiaries' maturity? What should I look for in a trustee? How can beneficiaries successfully integrate inheritances into their lives? How can trustees, prudently and within legal and other constraints, administer trusts in a way that enhances beneficiaries' lives? How can the widespread dissatisfaction, and all the talk of "problem" beneficiaries and "problem" trustees, give way to more creative and productive relationships? Hartley Goldstone, J.D. and MBA, delights in being surprised by profound questions, having served families for 30 years at attorney, trustee and planner. Today, he is an accomplished speaker, educator and coach for trustees, inheritors in all stages of life, their families and advisors. Kathy Wiseman, MBA and faculty at the Bowen Center for the Study of Family systems, assists people with the legacy potential of their family business, foundation and wealth. She educates families and their professionals about the human assets that underlie success for any trust/estate. Here's what others say about TrustWorthy: You are about to go on the positive journey that is the ongoing effort of Hartley and Kathy to reengineer the beneficiary/trustee relationship toward its higher functioning... -From the Foreword to TrustWorthy, by James E. Hughes Jr., author of The Cycle of the Gift and Family Wealth This is the one book to read this year if you are creating your estate plan, if you are a trustee or a beneficiary, or if you advise families of wealth. You will not think about trusts in the same way again. -Charles W. Collier, Former Senior Philanthropic Advisor at Harvard University and author of Wealth in Families TrustWorthy should be required reading not only for trustees and beneficiaries, but also for grantors and trusted family advisors. Hartley and Kathy's decision to use storytelling to reveal the vast potential in the trustee and beneficiary relationship was a stroke of genius. The stories in this book are inspiring and do a great job of demonstrating how trusts can be used not only to transfer financial wealth, but also to transfer legacy from one generation to the next. -Sara Hamilton, CEO and Founder, Family Office Exchange

"And the serpent case out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman and went to make war with her . . . to devour her." -- Revelation 12:15-17 and 12:4. The Endtime Beast is a system of law borrowed from the law of the sea implemented inland so that the "ecclesia" (the remnant) are forced into earnest demonstration. This system of law is patterned after the maritime trust that transfers the commercial interests of the people, called "suretyship," to alien strangers wherein commerce knows no bounds and is typified by a flood. The woman is non other than the real true bona fide seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob -- their progeny of today.
