The law of succession is a rich and vibrant subject which has been attracting more legal and academic attention in recent years. With the pending introduction of the SQE, the subject is likely to grow further in importance and popularity amongst law students.
This textbook is designed to meet the needs of students studying on the LLB, GDL or SQE by introducing them to succession law in a clear and succinct manner, whilst at the same time highlighting the many topics which are controversial and may be in need of reform. The textbook will also explain key practical points, such as will drafting, applying for a grant of probate, and calculating inheritance tax.
To aid learning, practical examples are provided, along with an in-depth look at some key cases.
