Equity and the Law of Trusts in Ireland


The third edition of this well-established legal text provides a comprehensive treatment and analysis of the area of equity and trusts. Set out in a user-friendly fashion that is easy to navigate, the book traces the development through history of the law of equity, the law of trusts, and equitable remedies.

This updated and expanded new edition provides an insight into recent developments in relation to both trusts and equitable remedies. New important case law in the area such as Stanley v Kieran [2012] IESC 19, Greene v Coady [2014] IEHC 38 and Ulster Bank v Roche [2012] 1 IR 765 are fully explored. There are essential updates in the areas of wills and probate, including a look at constructive trusts and Cawley & Anor v Lillis [2011] IECH 515, as well as updates in relation to proprietary estoppel claims and the three recent High Court decisions in this area. Of particular interest to both academics and practitioners is the section on injunctions due to the many areas of law involved, including asylum, commercial and industrial relations.

While the audience for this title will be largely academic, in particular law students, there is also a wealth of information which practitioners will find beneficial.

This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Irish Property Law and Irish Wills and Probate online service.
