LEXISNEXIS AUSTRALIA TITLE

The 7th edition of this authoritative work responds to developments over the last decade in all Australian jurisdictions. There are new chapters on the important areas of superannuation and choice of law. The balance of chapters have been substantially rewritten to reflect the decisions and statutes of the last 10 years, with particular attention to the areas of charitable, resulting and constructive trusts; the duties and liabilities of trustees; and tracing trust property.
