Wills, Trusts, and Estates, Ninth Edition (Aspen Casebook)

Wills, Trusts, and Estates retains the late Jesse Dukeminier’s unique blend of wit, erudition, insight, and playfulness at the same time as covering the entire key topics in a logical, clear organization. Interesting cases–not only fun to read, but fun to show as well–are enhanced and connected to broader legal principles by well-written notes, questions, and problems.

The Ninth Edition introduces a fully new, two-color design for a clearer presentation of core material and didactic imagery. Shaded box “sidebars” insert context, background, and real-life examples during 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 believe administration, creditor’s rights, believe modification, probate transfers, spousal and children’s shares, and trusts. The Ninth Edition features the contemporary 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 brand new Uniform Premarital and Marital Agreements Act, and attention is paid to the finalization of the brand 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.
