Abstract

China transplanted English trust law in 2001. This article examines the judgment of a recent case delivered by the Supreme Court of People’s Republic of China on the issue of the certainty of subject matter of trusts. It analyses the reasoning and judgment of the Court in the light of English trust law and considers what China may learn from the well-established English trust law principles and doctrines.
