Product Description

In this latest edition, distinguished authors Dukeminier, Lindgren, Sitkoff build on the success of their phenomenally popular casebook Wills, Trusts & 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 manner. 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.

Topic 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;
Latest changes to the Uniform Probate Code;
A completely revised and reorganized trustee administration chapter.
