Four to Five

So here it is almost the end of term and Autumn leaves are falling around thhe University Campus.

Assignments have been set now in all of my subjects and I seem to have a pile of books on my desk to read.

It seems there is no end to the reading...

One of my lecturers summed it up when they said "law is about words"

Becomming a lawyer is about being a wordsmith and lots of reading.

from two to three

Well, It's the Adelaide Cup Long Weekend and this means i have time to get my head down and work on my Trusts Assignment and Workshop Tute perparations.

so for today the question is...

"The most imporant institution in equity was, and is, the trust." (Ong Trusts Law in Australia, (2003). What is it about the nature and charactersistics of the trust and the lwa of trusts that make the trust such an important equitable institution?
