Abstract

Judges and others have frequently spoken of fiduciary relationships as relationships of trust. But what precisely does that mean? And, more broadly, how does any association of fiduciary relationships and trust help us to understand fiduciary law, its character and aims? My purpose in this chapter is to explore some lines of inquiry raised by the topic of fiduciary relationships, fiduciary law, and trust.
