trustee fiduciary duties:
duty of care and loyalty
separate, don't delegate
preserve and make productive
in ways the set-eh-lor* demands

*settlor but poetry stops for no bar prep

duty of loyalty for trustees:
don't add or take from or to the trust
or give one's self a gain
corporate trustees can't buy from self, but they can retain
[+ regular stuff]

contract remedies:
D:RECL SpREC-L ("dreckle spreckle")
damages: restitution, expectation, consequential, liquidated
specific performance, recission, reLoaded*
*= reformation but i wanted it to rhyme

most ppl prob don't need these but i'm an idiot so

Quizlet was fantastic! Taking the exam in 10 days. No time to come up with my own. This was a life saver. Thank you!

Something similar might already be here, but it's so close to the bar that I don't necessarily want to go through all of the pages.

When the parol evidence rule doesn't apply: SCAM FRAUD (sort of gives you a flavor of when it does not apply, with the exception of a couple, like Subsequent/Collateral Agreements and Reformation).

Subsequent Agreements
Collateral Agreements
Absence of Consideration
Mistake
Fraud
Reformation
Attacks on Validity
Undue Influence
Duress
