Product Description

With Estates in Land and Future Interests: A Step-by-Step Guide, author Linda H. Edwards gives students the extra help they need to understand this particularly difficult area.

The book is carefully crafted to demystify the subject:
One central graphic, a laminated flow chart available with the book, identifies the state of the title after a particular conveyance and links various estates to the future interests that follow them;
Uses a step-by-step, process approach to break analytical tasks into smaller, more manageable stages and avoid overwhelming the student;
Clear, simple language and short paragraphs and chapters make the text accessible. An open, attractive design enhanced by graphics facilitates understanding;
Opportunities for students to actively engage in the material include problem sets (and answers), study questions, and practice exercises. These tools help students gain experience as they acquire knowledge;
A special Vocabulary Appendix allows students a quick and easy way to review specific terms.
