      Abstract

      This dissertation considers the history of the equitable liability for assisting in a breach of trust and the current requirement that the intermeddling stranger must be dishonest. The position in equity is compared with the position in the criminal law and the common law and the dissertation will consider if ‘dishonesty’ is a state of mind or conduct and if it is appropriate to require the intermeddling stranger to be dishonest. The aim is to establish if liability in equity should be founded on the dishonesty or knowledge of an intermeddling stranger and to consider if the appropriate test is currently being applied.
