Article on Trusts and Estates Drafting

Sneddon_web

Karen J. Sneddon (Mercer Law School) recently published an article entitled, Trusts and Estates Drafting: Avoiding Rigor Mortis in the Law School Curriculum, Mercer Law Review Vol. 63, p. 1071, 2012 (November 19, 2011).  Provided below is the abstract from SSRN:

Every day lawyers sit with fingers curled above keyboards and pens poised above notepads. Lawyers are writers. There may have been a time when the practice of law primarily involved oral communication. However, the practice of law has long since become one of written communication. Although most law schools pride themselves on producing client-ready graduates, few schools actually deliver on this promise, especially as it relates to transactional practice. This essay explores a course that I have developed, Trusts and Estates Drafting, and how the course complements recent curriculum changes at Mercer Law School.
