The Lure of Equity and the Academic Voice.
About Jessica's Research:
Jessica’s research focuses on issues arising in trusts and the laws of contract and restitution. Her work is cited regularly by judges and other academics in New Zealand and overseas. Her writing has been particularly influential on the approach taken by courts to claims that many modern trusts should be ignored as shams or because one party holds too much power and should be treated as the true owner.
Jessica was appointed, as one of only two academics, by the New Zealand Law Commission to provide advice on its Review of the Law of Trusts, a major project undertaken at the request of the Government to reform trust law. She regularly provides continuing legal education for both lawyers and judges at national seminars and conferences.
