There is no doubt that equity is one of the hardest law courses you will have to do during your law degree. I used these notes to receive an overall Distinction Mark (84 overall) in Equity as well as a HD in the mid-semester assignment.

These notes have been comprehensively put together in a template format and are based on the topics covered during Equity and Trusts. The difficult part about equity is that everything only links together at the end of the course - these notes help try break down that barrier by drawing links between the different topics early on in the notes to help you grasp the topics better. My notes are all COLOUR CODED and NEATLY ORGANISED into different subsections, tables and headings. They also have MINI-PRACTISE QUESTIONS, DIAGRAMS and PICTURES integrated into the notes.

In these notes, I've scaffolded a template that can be used in both the mid-sem and final exam problem question. The scaffold contains the issues, rule (law) and then possible ways to apply the law (ie. applying the facts of the case). I have included blank spaces where it is appropriate to apply the facts.

My notes are inclusive of the following topics:
- Assignment of property
- Fiduciary obligations
- Express trusts
- Breach of trust
- Indemnification
- Remedies
- Tracing
- Priorities
- Presumed resulting trust
- Implied trusts
- Constructive trusts
- Bars to relief

I hope these notes will be as useful to you as they were for me in Equity and Trusts. Having notes COLOUR CODED and NEATLY ORGANISED was a real asset in a time pressured exam.
