Book Description

April 27, 2011 0735589275 978-0735589278
Contemporary Approaches to Trusts and Estates uses cases and statutory materials along with exercises and problems to integrate legal analysis and practice skills.

This innovative casebook:

  • Proceeds chronologically, covering lifetime planning issues before wills.
  • Uses extensive textual explanations to present the law and its many nuances.
  • Consistent with the call in the Carnegie Report for schools to add more practice skills to the curriculum, includes exercises in document drafting, role-playing, and letter writing to clients.
  • Reproduces statutory materials and the Restatement, so that no separate supplement is required.
  • Explores the ethical obligations of estate planning lawyers using the MRPC and the ACTEC Commentaries.
  • Presents contemporary cases, such as Feinberg, Kuralt, and Schiavo, which reflect the development of the law into the 21st century.
  • Includes fact-based problems, requiring students to explore cases, the UPC, the UTC, and other statutes, as well as the MRPC, in depth.

As far as casebooks go, this one is very helpful for understanding the legal concepts. It may help that I am taking the class from one of the authors, but I really appreciate how the problems in the book make the concepts presented more clear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad! January 20, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is laid out as if it is speaking to you. It is pretty clear. However, the statutes float all over the place throughout the chapters and the authors could do a better job with that. Also, it would be nice it it had abridged versions of the statutes in the back.
