Spring 2021
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. Uniform codes such as the Uniform Probate Code and the Uniform Trust Code provide the primary statutory framework for the course although we will look at some specific provisions from Florida and other sttes. Although some of the material will be presented in lectures, we will spend much of the class time working through problems. Thus, students are expected to have read all assignments thoroughly and to be prepared to participate meaningfully when called on in class.
