Hart studies in private law ; v. 24.
"This collection of essays, written by leading commentators from across the common law world, examines a range of topics concerning Equity and Trusts in the commercial context. The essays investigate the way in which doctrines derived from the equitable jurisdiction interact with and shape various areas of the law, including company law, commercial law and agency law. Subjects considered include the difficulties in identifying trust assets in the commercial context; the court's role in supervising the trust; and the remedies available in cases of fiduciary or trustee wrongdoing. This book will be of interest to both academics and practitioners working in these difficult areas of equity and commercial law."--Bloomsbury Publishing.
