Wills, Trusts, and Estates - 6th edition

Wills, Trusts, and Estates (ISBN10: 0735506361; ISBN13: 9780735506367)
ISBN13: 978-0735506367
ISBN10: 0735506361

Summary: In this timely new edition, distinguished authors Dukeminier and Johanson build on the success of their phenomenally popular casebook WILL, TRUSTS, AND ESTATES with new coverage of non-traditional family arrangements, living wills, and much more.
The authors blend cases selected for human interest as well as teaching value with provocative hypotheticals, cartoons, photographs, and other illustrations to comprehensively cover this area in a very lively, readable m
anner. Organized logically, the book begins with estate planning and its limitations, moves to wills and will substitutes, progresses to trusts, and concludes with a chapter on taxation.
New topica coverage includes:
  • babies inadvertently swapped in hospitals, surrogate mothers, lesbian adoption, and artificial insemination (including children conceived after sperm donor's death)
  • living wills and powers of attorney for health care, including the Cruzan case and the Uniform Health Care Decisions Act
  • a new chapter combining mental capacity and undue influence, which features the Seward Johnson will contest and related preventive lawyering issues shortened, more teachable chapters on future interests and perpetuities
  • latest changes to the Uniform Probate Code
  • a completely revised and reorganized trustee administration chapter
Like its predecessors, this book is a lively, flexible, and understandable teaching tool that is accompanied by a detailed and witty Teacher's Manual, which is regarded as the best in the field.
