This casebook focuses on California law and, with respect to trust material, the focus is on traditional trust doctrines, with the more salient California doctrines discussed where appropriate. California Wills and Trusts has numerous examples throughout, as well as "notes" that are often combinations of comments, examples, and broad questions based on note material. In addition, the analytical material covered in the earlier chapters is supplemented with dedicated problems.

The second edition of this casebook includes:

  • The latest developments concerning electronic wills in California;
  • The latest revisions intended to update the wording in the California statutes to be more inclusive;
  • The latest cases construing and applying California's limited harmless error doctrine;
  • The latest legislative updates to the California Testamentary Additions to Trusts Act;
  • The latest legislative updates to the California Transfer on Death Deed Act; and
  • A sample will for students' consideration.
