Regis Campfield (Marilyn Jeanne Johnson Distinguished Law Faculty Fellow and Professor of Law, Southern Methodist University School of Law), has prepared the Third Edition of his Estate Planning and Drafting book. It will be available for use in Fall 2007 classes.
The publisher (Thomson-West) describes the book as follows:
This is a problems-driven book, meaning that cases and rulings are included as resource materials for use in solving the problems. The materials are arranged in the fashion that individuals think about wealth transmission, beginning with wills, going on to trusts for non-tax reasons, then to tax planning at death and, finally, to lifetime tax planning.
The materials are arranged so that each chapter can be used independently of the chapters which follow or precede it. In each case, the issues are approached transactionally. It is expected that users will customize the materials by selecting those portions of interest to them, utilizing the convenient paragraph numbering system.
