Overview

The Second Edition of this popular study guide contains all of the entries and examples - as well as the Master Word List - which made it so successful in its first edition. In addition, it includes complete references to the Uniform Probate Code, including explanations of the Code's most recent changes and a comprehensive UPC table for cross-references. Now, teachers who either emphasize or only touch on the UPC can be assured that if there is a UPC section relevant to any term or concept in the book, it will be referred to by section number and, where appropriate, summarized in the pertinent entry.

Thorough coverage in an efficient format...This succinct but substantive overview presents:
• lucid explanations of essential terms, concepts, and doctrines
• helpful examples that clarify important concepts
• diagrams and charts to supplement the text

Revised, strengthened, and improved... A number of changes have been made to further maximize the accessibility of the material including:

• new entries reflecting those terms and concepts that have become essential to the subject of estates and trusts in the last few years such as:
• Supplemental (or Special Needs Trust)
• The Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care
• Uniform Statutory Rule Against Perpetuities
• a Uniform Probate Code Table that shows where each reference to the Code can be found
• the first sentence of each definition is now italicized for greater convenience

In short, this respected quick-reference work has become even more conmprehensive and useful without sacrificing the basic structure and teachers alike. You can recommend this book with confidence, knowing your students are getting a high-quality reference that compliments your other course materials.
