The Law of Trusts: Ford & Lee offers a general and comparative view of trusts legislation in all Australian jurisdictions and assists in interpreting the meaning of comparative Acts in the local jurisdiction. Detailed attention is paid to the underlying general principles and the impact of recent developments in trust law. Relevant legislation is reproduced by jurisdiction and features cross-references to commentary paragraphs where the provisions are discussed in context.

A useful table cross referencing the Trustee Act 1925 (UK) to trustee legislation in the Australian States and Territories, New Zealand, Jersey, the Cayman Islands and the American Uniform Trust Code is included.
