The Travelling Trust

Course Outline

This course addresses the topic of the proper law of a trust. A change in the place of administration often involves the implementation of a new set of rules to govern the trust relationship. The lecturer will examine how a change in the proper law can remedy trust defects and prevent trust disputes. Various devices and techniques available in the offshore will be explored.
