The key cases and materials relating to equity and trusts are drawn together to illustrate the reasoning processes of the court and the development of legal principles. Cases are carefully selected, edited, and cross-referenced to the companion textbook, Principles of Australian Equity and Trusts, to promote a deep understanding of this complex area of law. Both books follow the same chapter order and structure, making it easy to use them in tandem. The authors provide discussion of the key concepts, putting the case extracts into their legal context. Helpful analysis of each extract assists readers to understand why each case is important and the principle to be drawn from the decision.

New cases in the fourth edition include:

  • Cavendish Square Holding BV v Makdessi; ParkingEye Ltd v Beavis (2016) on penalties
  • Chamberlain Early Learning Centre Pty Ltd v Precious 1 Pty Ltd (2017) on equitable set-off
