Wills, Trusts, and Estates retains the late Jesse Dukeminier's unique blend of wit, erudition, insight, and playfulness while covering all the key topics in a logical, clear organization. Interesting cases--not only fun to read, but fun to teach as well--are enhanced and connected to broader legal principles by well-written notes, questions, and problems. The Ninth Edition introduces a completely new, two-color design for a clearer presentation of core material and didactic imagery. Shaded box "sidebars" insert context, background, and real-life examples throughout the text. Improved organization consolidates the material into blocks that follow an orderly and logical progression. An introductory chapter on trusts appears before nonprobate transfers, providing much-needed context for revocable trusts as will substitutes. Reorganization enhances the revised material on nonprobate transfers and trust administration, creditor's rights, trust modification, probate transfers, spousal and children's shares, and trusts. The Ninth Edition features the latest developments in statutes, law reform projects, scholarly writing, and cases, such as those on revocable trusts and harmless error in will execution. Relevant uniform law activity is discussed, including the new Uniform Premarital and Marital Agreements Act, and attention is paid to the finalization of the new Restatements on Property and Trusts. Updates to the social science work on inheritance and intestacy are presented. Attention is paid to developments affecting inheritance among same-sex partners.

Written by well-recognized scholars in the field, Wills, Trusts, and Estates: The Essentials by Reid Weisbord, David Horton, and Steven Urice provides a unique platform for teaching Trusts and Estates as an accessible, engaging area of the law. As its title implies, Essentials covers only the core legal doctrines and does so in a concise, straightforward format that focuses on practical application rather than theory. The organizational structure of each chapter facilitates student learning by providing: (1) a clear explanation of the doctrine in plain English, (2) an excerpt of relevant statutory authority where applicable, (3) an illustration of the doctrine through a carefully-selected judicial opinion, and (4) an application of the doctrine in a problem set. Each judicial opinion is followed by a series of questions, as well as narrative answers to each question. The problem sets, which are heavily emphasized, simulate the practice of law in a realistic T&E setting. Key Features: Makes a challenging course uniquely accessible. Plain English explanation of legal doctrine at the beginning of each section helps ensures students have a basic foundation of substantive knowledge, allowing the professor to focus classroom discussion on applying the doctrine. Delivers well-edited judicial opinions in a format that allows students to achieve mastery of the materials before entering the classroom. Emphasizes problem-solving through detailed problem sets that allow students to apply newly learned legal doctrine to real-world situations. Offers concise, yet comprehensive coverage. All core Trusts & Estates topics are covered in fewer than 650 pages.

The Sixth Edition of this highly-regarded casebook continues its innovative emphasis on the connection between the law of trusts and estates and the changing American family. The Sixth Edition incorporates the most recent uniform acts from the Uniform Law Commission and the Third Restatements of the American Law Institute, and discusses the very latest "hot" topics, including trust protectors, directed trusts, trust decanting, family offices, and donor standing to enforce charitable trusts. The Sixth Edition also incorporates new important cases, such as the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Hillman v. Maretta (2013). The authors of this book have long been at the forefront of law reform in trusts and estates, and this tradition continues under the authorship of Thomas Gallanis, who is the executive director of the Uniform Law Commission's Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Trust and Estate Acts. He was also an associate reporter for the Restatement Third of Trusts and has been the reporter of two uniform acts, most recently the Uniform Powers of Appointment Act (completed 2013). The Sixth Edition emphasizes problems and questions to facilitate classroom discussion and analysis. Among many other things, the book teaches doctrine and policy, planning and drafting, case analysis and statutory interpretation. The detailed teacher's manual includes extensive syllabi and notes for classroom teaching.

This is a completely new trusts and estates casebook and takes a new approach in its material and structure. The book includes a toolbox section, introducing students early on to the basics of wills, trusts, powers, joint tenancies, life insurance, and miscellaneous other forms. Thus, this book organizes material around planning properly, rather than around litigation. The book also covers barriers to succession, such as the rule against perpetuities, slayer statutes, revocation, and litigation (mental capacity, no-contest clauses, and the like). Rather than including long and lightly edited cases, this book utilizes several case squibs that illustrate different factual scenarios for each legal issue followed by the court's decision and reasoning. The book also includes many statutes with lengthy analyses of the different types of statutes using the UPC as the primary model. The author also includes practice points, tax tips, and technology traps throughout the entire book. There are numerous problems throughout the materials, with the answers located at the back of the book.
