Abstract

Equity, Trusts and Commerce is a collection of 14 essays that were first presented at a conference of the same name held at the National University of Singapore, Faculty of Law in April 2016. All 14 contributors are leading experts. All 14 papers are focused on the interplay and interaction of equitable doctrines with commerce. This is undoubtedly a very timely and important contribution to the debates on modern equity. Recent cases from the highest courts of various common law jurisdictions demonstrate a clear need for judges, practitioners and academics to directly grapple with the influence of the commercial context on the development of equitable principles and doctrines. Locally, in Singapore where this pre-eminent conference was held, the establishment of the Singapore International Commercial Court could hasten the maturing of the discourse on the interaction between equity and commercial law.
