Summary: Law of Trusts: Key Cases (Concise)
Concise notes providing the legal principles of each of the key cases taught in the course. Provides an outline of each topic which is extremely helpful to aid in answering problem questions.
Please note that these notes are intentionally concise and condensed, and provide the bare legal principles without any discussion of the judgement or how the verdict was reached. They are best used for revision once one has already undertaken an in-depth review of the course. I will be uploading a more detailed set of notes in due course, which will expand on these cases and principles.
Includes key cases and principles for the following topics:
Secret and Half-Secret Trusts
Non-Charitable Purpose Trusts
Tracing, Claiming and Following
Liability of Strangers (Dishonest Assistance and Knowing Receipt)
Fiduciary Relationships and Unauthorized Profits
Consequences of a Breach of Trusts
