Estates and Trusts Textbook

Estates and Trusts Joel C. Dobris (Professor of Law, UC Davis School of Law), Melanie B. Leslie (Professor of Law, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law), and Stewart E. Sterk (H. Bert and Ruth Mack Professor of Real Estate Law, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law) recently published their book entitled Estates and Trusts, 4th ed. (Foundation Press 2011). The publisher’s description of the book is below:

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. The unusually helpful teacher’s manual includes not only case summaries and detailed legal analysis, but detailed lesson plans and discussion questions for those new to law teaching.
