This is the leading established student text on the law of succession, covering both wills and intestacy. Although primarily designed for use by students taking degree and professional courses, it is also popular with practitioners who need a clear and comprehensive account of the law of succession. In addition to the enactment of the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996, and the Trustee Act 2000, there have been significant case law developments since the last edition including Corbett v. Newey on testamentary intent, Couser v. Couser on witnessing wills, Fuller v. Strum, Ewing v. Bennett and Re Dabbs on capacity, Walker V. Medlicott and Horsfall v. Haywards on rectification, Gillett v. Holt on proprietary estoppel, Re Goodchild on mutual wills, Re Pearce, Re Hancock and Espinosa v. Bourke on family provision, Re Cameron on satisfaction, Carr-Glyn v. Frearsons and Grattan v. McNaughton on duty of care and Re D.W.S. on failure.
