Publication of 150th anniversary edition of Snell’s Equity

Sweet & Maxwell have published the 34th edition of Snell’s Equity, which is the leading text on the principles governing equitable remedies, trusts, and other matters within the scope of Chancery jurisdiction.  This publication is a milestone in that it marks the 150th anniversary of the text, first written by Edmund Snell before the Judicature reforms of 1873-75. As such Snell’s Equity is one of the great nineteenth century treatises that brought order to English law, and it continues to be used throughout the English common law world.

Steven Elliott QC is joint general editor of Snell’s Equity.
