This book is designed to help law students in their efforts to master the course in Wills and Trusts and to pass examination questions in that subject. For instance, what property does an heir get when the decedent doesn't leave a will. What are the rights of the spouse and the children upon the death of the decedent with or without a will. What requirements are necessary to make a will and/or changes to it. How and what are beneficiaries entitled to receive. Additionally, the reader will understand what elements are necessary to create a trust, what are the powers and duties of the trustee and how the trust must be administered. Other subjects, such as anti-lapse and pretermission are given extensive coverage because of the difficulties they present when they interact with other doctrines.
