Family property law: cases and materials on wills, trusts, and future interests
A forward-looking casebook, Family Property Law focuses on new themes in family property law in the areas of wills, trusts, estates, and probates. The book recognizes the reform-minded nature of the current era of family property law, including its changing notions of family and society, the acceptance of a partnership theory for assessing the financial aspects of marriage, and the need to reshape the law of donative transfers into a unity. The third edition presents the following new features: integrated coverage of the new Uniform Trust Code and of the American Law Institute-approved parts of the new Restatements; important new case and statutory law, including Vermont?s civil union statute and a sample certificate of civil union; the two Kuralt decisions of the Montana Supreme Court holding that Charles Kuralt?s letter to his mistress constituted a holographic will; and fully integrated treatment of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001, which ultimately repealed the estate tax and the generation-skipping transfer tax.
