Book Review: The Law of Trusts, 66 Yale Law Journal 808 (1957)


In an Epilogue to both the first and second editions Professor Scott, with characteristic conciseness, says of his work: "This, as I understand it, is the Anglo-American law of trusts." Because the author is a distinguished teacher who has spent a lifetime working in the field, it is to be expected that no one "understands" the subject better. And this has been the judgment of the profession, as demonstrated by the critical acclaim which greeted the first edition, the prominent position which these volumes occupy in the nation's law libraries, and the frequency with which citations to Scott occur in every decision and brief pertaining to trusts.
