Community Property in California
Written by a recognized expert on community property and family law issues in California, Grace Ganz Blumberg's comprehensive casebook prepares students for the California bar examination and equips them for California practice in the areas of divorce, decedents--estates, and debtor-creditor law. Community Property in California carefully balances cases, notes, questions, and problems for student comprehension. Because community property is a relatively narrow subject involving the interplay of state legislation and case law, the casebook is structured to encourage students to develop and refine their analytic skills and to enable professors to guide their students in doing so. Comparative text puts California law into context by including references to the Uniform Marital Property Act and the marital property chapter of the American Law Institute's Principles of the Law of Family Dissolution.
