Spring 2018
LAW563  A  TRUSTS & ESTATES ESSENTIALS

Course Description
This course introduces students to (and prepares them for advanced study and research in) the substantive law of wills, trusts, and estates. Rather than the law of any one jurisdiction, uniform codes such as the Uniform Probate Code and the Uniform Trust Code provide the statutory framework for the course. Although lecture is the primary format, students are expected to have read all assignments thoroughly and to be prepared to participate meaningfully when called on in class. The assigned text is Weisbord, Horton, & Urice, Wills, Trusts, and Estates: The Essentials. Wolters-Kluwer, Aspen Casebook Series, 2018.
