The Seventh Edition of Sterk and Leslie’s Estates and Trusts modernizes a classic book to reflect new developments in the field. The new edition includes:
  • New sections on Electronic Wills and Disposition of Digital Assets
  • Discussion of the UPC’s 2019 intestate succession and adoption changes
  • Seven new principal cases and many note cases decided since 2019, including:
    • Estate of Berger (introducing students to holographic wills and the dispensing power in the context of a single case
    • Slosberg v. Giller (illustrating the application of a will’s no-contest clause)
    • Roenne v. Miller (illustrating the limits on a trustee’s supposedly unconstrained discretion)
    • Forbes v. Forbes (applying the no further inquiry rule to trustee behavior)
    • Knopik v. Shelby Investments, LLC (enforcing a no contest clause to bar a breach of fiduciary duty claim)
