Principles of Equity and Trusts Law in Hong Kong offers a clear explanation of the fundamentals of equity and trusts law. The book looks at the subject from a distinctly Hong Kong perspective, discussing the relevance of equity and trusts in common Hong Kong domestic and commercial settings. In addition, there are many useful references to how other jurisdictions (especially the United Kingdom) deal with problematic questions. Clear statements of the law are brought to life by extensive analysis of the decisions of the courts of Hong Kong. The book includes self-test questions and suggestions for further reading, designed to help students to check their understanding and deepen their knowledge of the subject.
