This book provides law students with a clearly written and accessible introduction to the law of trusts and its place in modern private law. This fascinating subject has produced a vocabulary and legal structure that are not to be found elsewhere. The law of trusts continues to evolve to meet modern challenges in many different areas of the law including commercial law, pension funds, and restitution. Mastery of the subject requires both an understanding of very old legal concepts and an ability to apply them to modern legal problems, and this book is designed to help the reader do both. With plain language and a relaxed style, Robert Chambers explains the key concepts and essential structure of trust law and helpfully compares them to other areas of the law. The book is divided into four main parts: the trust relationship, the creation of trusts by consent and by operation of law, and breach of trust. In each part, traditional trust concepts are explained in modern terms, providing a deeper understanding of the traditional concepts and an ability to relate them to similar concepts used in other areas of law, such as contracts, torts, and unjust enrichment.
