Equity and Trusts Law in Hong Kong – Fourth Edition
Author: Lawrence Ma
"In 2011, when reviewing the second edition of "Equity and Trusts Law in Hong Kong", I wrote that the work was to be welcomed and would surely have a third edition. The appearance of this fourth edition further bears out that optimism."
- The Hon. William Gummow A.C. Non-Permanent Judge, Court of Final Appeal [Foreword to the Fourth Edition]
"This admirable work, ... continues to be an extremely useful treatise on equity and trusts to local practitioners and judges. It contains all the important topics in this area of the law, with elaborate exposition of the relevant concepts and principles, supported by cases decided in England, Australia, Hong Kong and other common law courts. It is comprehensively researched and presented in a clear and systematic way."
- Patrick Chan, Non Permanent Judge, Court of Final Appeal [Foreword to the Third Edition]
