I am studying GDL with MMU.

Is it true that the school would tell you to use one textbook but they themselves use use a different textbook?

is this true generally for LLB and GDL in different law schools?

thanks

Yes and no.

They will use the most advanced textbook possible. Often this is not appropriate introductory text for students. For example, my lecturers recommended Hanbury and Martin's Modern Equity for students but in emails with us they'd cite Snell's Equity, the latter being more comprehensive but thereby less readable.

Thanks. If you are using Hanbury and Martin for equity, what are you using for trusts? I heard Moffat for trusts is quite good.

I was told Davis & Virgo's Equity & Trusts : Text, Cases and Materials, 2nd ed, is the best generally for Equity and Trusts as a whole..
