Now in a new edition thoroughly updated by Susan Gary, this text retains the style and clear language that have kept generations of students engaged as they explore this intriguing field. Examples, charts, cross-references among similar concepts, and frameworks for analyzing problem areas all combine to give students the tools to deepen their understanding. From an opening declaring this course isn't about dead people to a closing that endorses advice from Snoopy, the book demonstrates how trusts and estates doctrines affect real people. Although the book is designed primarily as a student supplement, some teachers have used it successfully as the primary text, supplemented by statutory materials, for both the basic course and for more specialized courses. Practicing attorneys may also find it useful if they are new to the subject or have been away from it for some time.
