Equity Law

EquityLaw – the term refers to a branch of the Common Law giving whole set of equity law rules, based on the predominant “fairness” characteristic of equity such as “equity will not suffer a wrong to be without a remedy” or “he who comes to equity must come with clean hands”.Equity Law has been developed after the Common law to offset the rigid interpretations medieval English judges were giving the Common law. For a long period of time, there were separate courts in England and its dependents: one court for Common Law and one court for Equity and the decisions of the latter, where they conflicted, prevailed. It is a matter of legal dispute and discussion whether or not Common Law and Equity Law are nowadays “fused.”
