Robert Flannigan: A Relational Theory of Fiduciary Accountability (November 18, 2021)

Robert Flannigan, of University of Saskatchewan, has made available for download his article, “A Relational Theory of Fiduciary Accountability”, published in (2021) 27 Trusts & Trustees 646. The abstract is as follows:

Here I examine the attempt of one writer to frame the law in what he describes as a ‘relational’ theory. I discuss the diverse misconceptions that impair his work.
