Module content and teaching

Principal aims

A principal aim of this module is to enable the student to study and evaluate the application of the trust in a variety of areas. The module therefore bears on reasonably well-known social phenomena such as the use of trusts to tie up family property over generations, for example, tax planning through creation of trusts (here or in the Channel Islands or in other appropriate tax havens), controlling the investment activities of financial institutions such as pension funds, attempts by political or quasi-political pressure groups to obtain financial and other advantages by setting themselves up as charitable trusts; the legal and professional standards of conduct affecting ordinary and professional trustees, and remedies for breach of trust. There is thus a fairly wide, though not overwhelming, range of background material to be drawn upon.
