Description

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.
