This module explores the origins of equity and the rules governing the creation and administration of private and charitable trust arrangements.   This module will develop your understanding of the general principles of the law of Trusts, both in their own right and within the wider context of property law, and will do so by concentrating on selected topics which are studied in depth.  You will critically assess how these principles are applied in factual scenarios, and develop an understanding of how they impact people in their everyday lives. 

This module is one of the seven foundations of legal knowledge required by the JASB of the Law Society and Bar Council and it is therefore compulsory for all of you who wish to progress onto the Vocational Stage of Training to become a Solicitor or Barrister.
