Product Description

A California Companion is a concise compilation of California statutes and cases needed by teachers and students of California wills, trusts, and estates law.  Designed for ease of use, the statutes have more informative captions than those in the code books and the cases are severely edited.  There is a detailed Table of Contents listing all the statutes, with identifying captions, and principal cases with a short description identifying the subject matter.  A Table of Cases and a Table of Statutes which groups statutes into Bar Statutes, other sections of the Probate Code, sections of the Family Code, the Civil Code, and the Code of Civil Procedure are included.  The organization of the book tracks the Dukeminier & Sitkoff casebook (Wills, Trusts, and Estates, 9th ed. 2013) but the materials can easily be used with other casebooks.

 The Companion includes all statutes required for the California Bar Exam plus selected additional California statutes covering:

  • Intestate succession
  • Wills, no-contest clauses
  • Adopted, step and nonmarital children
  • Posthumously conceived children
  • Disqualified transferees
  • Elder abusers
  • Non-probate transfers
  • Powers of appointment
  • Trustee’s duty to inform and account
  • Rights of creditors to reach trust assets 

The Companion includes forty-five principal California cases determining:

  • Time limits for filing wills and claims to estate property
  • Inheritance by, from, and through  adopted and non-marital children
  • Equitable adoption
  • Inheritance by children conceived after death of parent
  • Execution and revocation of formal and holographic wills
  • Standing to claim elder abuse and limits on remedy
  • Disqualified transferees
  • Attorney liability to intended beneficiaries for malpractice
  • Tort of intentional interference with expected inheritance
  • Trust revocation
  • Rights of creditors in trust assets
  • Rights of beneficiaries to trust accounting
  • Remainder beneficiaries’ standing to sue trustee of revocable trust
