  • in the specific context of resulting trusts, a revamped chapter including an updated analysis of the Quistclose trust and a range of new cases addressing inter alia, the residual role of the purchase money resulting trust, the operation of the presumption of advancement and the scope of the illegality defence post-Patel v Mirza
