Trusts are increasingly significant in modern legal practice because they provide inventive and flexible solutions to legal issues. The unique nature of the trust, and its varied forms, make it an important tool in estates law, commercial law, international law, pension and benefits law, among others. Halsbury's Trusts classifies and analyzes the principal types of trust, and explains their creation and use in a variety of contexts. This national resource includes discussion of trusts under the Québec Civil Code. Halsbury’s Trusts gives practitioners a competitive advantage by explaining how to apply trust principles to different areas of practice.

Topics in this national reference include:

  • Nature of trusts
  • Classification and characteristics of trusts
  • Express trusts and trusts arising by operation of law (including constructive trusts)
  • Charitable and non-charitable purpose trusts
  • Invalid and unlawful conditions
  • Inter vivos and testamentary trusts
  • The Statute of Frauds and equitable interests
  • Powers of appointment
  • Duties, powers and rights of trustees
  • Breach of trust
