Understanding Trusts and Estates
432 pp $55.00
This new edition of Understanding Trusts and Estates retains the style and clear language that have kept generations of students engaged as they explore this intriguing field. Updates include coverage of electronic wills, new uniform act treatment of the parent-child relationship and unmarried cohabitants, directed trusts and trust protectors, and the uniform power of appointment act. Examples, charts, cross-references among similar concepts, and frameworks for analyzing problem areas all combine to give students the tools to deepen their understanding. Examples throughout the book demonstrate 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.
