This unit introduces students to Trusts. Students will examine the concept of a trust, the role of the trustee and the beneficiary. This examination will enable students to determine whether, given a fact situation a trust exists so as to then consider what equitable rights and interests apply. Furthermore, the unit will also focus on equitable assignments, fiduciary duties, confidential information, unconscionable transactions, estoppel, penalties, subrogation and contribution with a view to investigating whether a trust exists.
