Ong on Equity is a substantial and sophisticated work from Professor Denis Ong, author of the acclaimed commentary: Trusts Law in Australia, now in its third edition. Ong on Equity analyses in detail relevant cases from all the Australian and from international jurisdictions and thoroughly reviews all aspects of judicial decision making.
Importantly, Professor Ong considers unanswered questions as they arise in judicial reasoning in an incisive and learned style and offers fresh insights and thoughtful scholarly analysis in respect of each of the topics comprehensively covered in this volume.
