Famous People Wills

Enhanced student interest in studying various wills concepts may often be achieved by using real-life examples.

Court TV has an excellent collection of wills including those of Chief Justice Warren Burger, Princess Diana, Jerry Garcia, John Lennon, President Richard Nixon, Babe Ruth, and The King (Elvis).

National Archives (United Kingdom) contains all the wills approved by the Prerogative Court of Canterbury from 1384-1858 including the wills of Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, and Christopher Wren.  There is small cost associated with downloading these wills.
