On Equity is a thorough and commanding examination of the practice and principles of equity, written by the the Honourable Justice Young, former Chief Judge in Equity of the Supreme Court of NSW from 2001–2009 and currently a Judge of Appeal of the Supreme Court of NSW and two distinguished co-authors.
By providing a fresh treatment of equitable doctrines and remedies, this seminal work will ensure that practitioners and students of law have an essential and accessible model for equity in the 21st century.
The distinguished authors explore the practice of equity and the day-to-day business of equity practitioners and elucidate the underlying principles in a clear and readable manner.
