About This Book
In Scots law, the legal concept of the trust has a long history of development and, over that time, has come to take on a number of characteristics. Because of this, there is no single definition of a trust that covers every example of the trust relationship. That's where Trusts Law Essentials comes in. This concise volume will quickly introduce you to the Scots law of trusts – from creating a trust and appointing trustees to conflicts on interest and the termination of trusts. It also looks at the different purposes of a trust and the particular issues surrounding charities and charitable trusts. End-of-chapter summaries of essential facts and essential cases will help you to identify, understand and remember the key elements of trusts law in Scotland.
