Equity and trusts law HELPWatch
‘The real difficulty with equitable remedies is that they are ill-defined, subject toa raft of limiting parameters and cannot be relied upon. So, there is no realsense of equity as a bastion of fairness, which is designed to fill in the gapsleft by the common law.'
Critically analyse this statement demonstrating breadth of knowledge by drawing on materials from at least one other aspect of the module other than remedies, but with a focus upon demonstrating
-Intro: include brief mention of the purpose of equity, and the special nature of equitable remedies (as opposed to common law remedies)
-Choose a few types of equitable remedies to use in the essay for illustrative purposes (i'm assuming you probably don't have the space for a more comprehensive analysis). for example, you could choose injunctions, specific performance and rectification.
-I'd do a paragraph per remedy, and maybe a few "comparative" paragraphs
-Form some arguments for why these remedies are ill-defined and therefore are not efficient in fulfilling their purpose (and put forward counter arguments where relevant)
-See the direction in which your main arguments skew and conclude!
