    Hi all

    I'm after some advice!

    For our Equity coursework, we've been asked to read two articles;

    1. Margaret Halliwell - Perfecting imperfect gifts and trusts: have we reached the end of the Chancellor's Foot?

    2. Jonathan Garton - The role of the trust mechanism in the rule in Re Rose

    and then answer the following: "Is either argument to be preferred? Explain the basis of your position and reach a reasoned conclusion."

    How would you go about answering a question like this? I've never had to answer anything like this before!

    Thanks in advance!

    What the question asks you to do is what you should do for most essay questions really... evaluate the strength of opposing arguments agreeing or disagreeing with the question, your coursework just makes it really explicit.

    Many ways you could structure it, but a thematic approach where you consider the strengths/weaknesses of each argument in the relevant context might work

    hey, ive got the same question and having difficulty with it too i think the articles are confusing by themselves. ive been going over them for a while now and dont really know where to start ??
    is the Halliwell article basically against the fact that the Pennington case followed the T. Chithram case?
    and is the Garton article suggesting that Pennington was a constructive trust (conscionability of the transferor)?
    argh maybe m thinking about it too much!
    are you having any luck?
