This article considers where the Supreme Court's decision in Akers v Samba leaves the law on the scope and application of the Hague Trusts Convention. It suggests that, in a number of respects, the decision gives rise to as many questions as answers. In particular, the role of foreign law, and the interaction between trusts law and related areas of law (including on the transfer of property and insolvency) remains somewhat elusive.
