Contemporary Approaches to Trusts and Estates uses cases and statutory materials along with exercises and problems to integrate legal analysis and practice skills. The book can be used in a three- or four-credit course with or without the exercises, and sample syllabi are included in the Teacher’s Manual.
This innovative casebook:
- Proceeds chronologically, covering lifetime planning issues before wills.
- Uses extensive textual explanations to present the law and its many nuances.
- Consistent with the call in the Carnegie Report for schools to add more practice skills to the curriculum, includes exercises in document drafting, role-playing, and letter writing to clients.
- Reproduces statutory materials and the Restatement, so that no separate supplement is required.
- Explores the ethical obligations of estate planning lawyers using the MRPC and the ACTEC Commentaries.
- Presents contemporary cases, such as Feinberg, Kuralt, and Schiavo, which reflect the development of the law into the 21st century.
- Includes fact-based problems, requiring students to explore cases, the UPC, the UTC, and other statutes, as well as the MRPC, in depth.
Is accompanied by a Teacher’s Manual that offers suggestions on:
- Teaching the cases and statutory materials and expanding the discussion beyond what is included in the casebook
- Appropriate responses for the questions and problems
- How to evaluate each exercise
- Ways to vary each assignment from year to year
