The first chapter provides overviews of the wealth transfer and the transfer tax systems. Chapters on intestacy and wills develop the basic doctrines upon which the system depends. To facilitate an understanding of the law's movement toward integration, will substitutes are covered before discussing the problems caused by changed circumstances and the devices for protecting the family. Coverage of problems involving planning for incapacity serves as a bridge to coverage of trust doctrine expanded to highlight recent developments. Fundamentals of Trusts and Estates closes with topics traditionally designated "future interests," as well as a chapter on fiduciary administration.
The Third Edition of this book presents generally traditional material in a more efficient, contemporary format.
