Problems and Materials on Decedents Estates and Trusts, Seventh Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The book offers complete coverage of decedents' estates, trusts, and future interests through:

- the expertise of a team of highly regarded authors

- problems cases, text, statutes, and excerpts of Uniform Acts and Restatements, making the materials both teachable and interesting to students

- a comprehensive Teacher's Manual that reflects the changes in the book and provides answers, guidance and ideas about the use of the questions and problems

The Seventh Edition responds to user feedback as well as to changes in the law:

- new author Martin Begleiter, who has used the book for 27 years, brings fresh teaching insights to the revision

- malpractice and ethical issues are raised intermittently throughout the chapters, with references to the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and Model Code of Professional Responsibility

- enhanced efficiency in covering traditional subject matter (e.g., scaled back principal and income coverage) to accommodate newer materials and emphases

- updated developments in Uniform Laws and Restatements, such as the Uniform Trust Code (2000 through 2004 amendments); Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act (2002); Restatements Third of Trusts and of Property: Wills and Other Donative Transfers, both through the Tentative Drafts approved in 2005

- new primary cases include Estate of Martignacco on posthumous DNA testing, Bongaards v. Millen on elective shares, Allen v. Dalk on testator's signature, Ventura County Dept. of Child Services v. Brown on rights of creditors of a beneficiary, Estate of Janes and Estate of Wilde on prudent investing and measures of trustee liability, and Petition of Goodman and Trusts Under Willof Divine on consideration of beneficiary's other resources in discretionary trusts

- revised and added notes and problems throughout the book
