This well-established and respected textbook has been relied upon by students and academic scholars for the last 40 years. Praised for the clarity of the writing, the comprehensive scope of the content and the high level of critical analysis, Professor Philip Pettit builds on the strengths of the book to offer students a rigorous and yet readable account of equity and trusts law.
This 11th edition has been developed to answer directly the needs of modern day students and lecturers. Chapter introductions help to orientate the reader with each new topic covered. The reason people create trusts in the first place is explored and Professor Pettit focuses on carefully explaining each new concept as he introduces it. Diagrams offer a fresh way of explaining particularly complex or abstract concepts. Students will find the new glossary a helpful tool to aid them in familiarizing themselves with technical and specialist terms.
This classic text has been fully updated to cover the Charities Act 2006, which for the first time contains a statutory definition of charity and makes considerable changes to its regulation, and so far as relevant the Mental Capacity Act 2005, which introduced a lasting power of attorney. The introductory chapter has been expanded and the important recent developments covered include those in relation to the common intention constructive trust and shared homes, proprietary estoppel, the accessory liability principle (knowing assistance), the intervention of the court in the exercise by trustees of their discretionary powers, freezing injunctions and injunctions in relation to invasion of privacy.

Philip H. Pettit is a Barrister of the Middle Temple and Emeritus Professor of Equity of the Universities of Bristol and Buckingham.
Review from previous edition "Pettit's Equity and the Law of Trusts is a highly revered text in this area of law... The text is written in an accessible manner... The commentary is excellent and provides a superb balance between explanatory points and academic scholarship... This is an excellent text which provides a readable account of equity and trusts. Anyone interested in studying or researching this area of law should seriously consider buying this text." --(The Student Law Journal, March 2007)
"Professor Pettit's approach is more literary, and he uses the cases to deduce what he sees as the position, and presents his conclusions lucidly and clearly. This makes a more readable text, and one that can be enjoyed by following the arguments he has extracted from the judgments." --(Trusts and Trustees, January 2006)
