This casebook presents a functional approach to Trusts and Estates. In addition to a focus on recent cases, the book uses questions and problems to focus student attention on issues that face estate planners, litigators and policy makers. In each chapter, it integrates discussion of drafting and planning issues with its treatment of doctrine and policy. In addition, this casebook is accompanied by power point slides to use in explaining concepts for which diagrams are useful, such as intestate succession, the elective share, anti-lapse statutes, abatement and future interests.

This is a completely new trusts and estates casebook and takes a new approach in its material and structure. The book includes a toolbox section, introducing students early on to the basics of wills, trusts, powers, joint tenancies, life insurance, and miscellaneous other forms. Thus, this book organizes material around planning properly, rather than around litigation. The book also covers barriers to succession, such as the rule against perpetuities, slayer statutes, revocation, and litigation (mental capacity, no-contest clauses, and the like). Rather than including long and lightly edited cases, this book utilizes several case squibs that illustrate different factual scenarios for each legal issue followed by the court's decision and reasoning. The book also includes many statutes with lengthy analyses of the different types of statutes using the UPC as the primary model. The author also includes practice points, tax tips, and technology traps throughout the entire book. There are numerous problems throughout the materials, with the answers located at the back of the book.

The Sixth Edition incorporates the most recent uniform acts from the Uniform Law Commission and the Third Restatements of the American Law Institute, and discusses the very latest "hot" topics, including trust protectors, directed trusts, trust decanting, family offices, and donor standing to enforce charitable trusts.

The authors of this book have long been at the forefront of law reform in trusts and estates, and this tradition continues under the authorship of Thomas Gallanis, who is the executive director of the Uniform Law Commission's Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Trust and Estate Acts.
