This casebook takes a more experiential approach to the teaching of trusts and estates law. This first edition features recent cases and model documents in almost every chapter of the book; it also preserves many of the most famous and teachable trusts and estates cases. The opening chapters introduce students to issues around planning for incapacity and death and to accessible and understandable material on estate and gift taxes. The remainder of the book focuses on estate planning for low and moderate income individuals, professional responsibility issues as they arise in a trusts and estates practice, and traditional and contemporary cases and documents designed to expose students to the most important concerns that arise in a trusts and estates practice. Each chapter also features extensive notes and questions designed to help lead students through the major issues, and an appendix provides full versions of various historical “celebrity” wills and contemporary model trusts. A voluminous teacher’s manual accompanies the book, with briefs of every principal case and extensive notes designed to aid the teacher in advancing classroom discussion on nearly every note in the casebook. The teacher’s manual also includes additional problems and other materials designed to develop professional skills.
