Trefnydd: Dr Marie Parker
Equity and Trusts is a compulsory module in the LLB programme. The main aim of the module is to provide the students with a sound academic knowledge of the law of trusts. The purpose which this serves is to equip the students with the skills which they will need for the study of other subjects, particularly land law and wills and succession, in which a sound grasp of equity and trusts is essential.
The module will allow the student to study the relationship between Equity and Common Law and cover areas of trusts as used for family or commercial or for public charitable purposes.
A study will be made of express, resulting and constructive trusts of property, trustees powers and obligations and the nature and scope of fiduciary obligations. The student will be able to identify the nature and scope of equitable rights and equitable remedies including tracing, freezing injunctions, search orders, specific performance, imposition of personal liability to account as constructive trustee, estoppel entitlements to property or compensation and the developing principle of unconscionability.
