Borkowski's Law of Succession
Presented and written in a friendly and engaging style, Dr Brian Sloan's revised edition is perfectly pitched for today's undergraduate students. Considerable attention is given to the area's rich and evolving case-law, illustrating the relevance of the law to modern life; the central issues and academic debates surrounding inheritance are discussed fully.
New to this edition are an introductory chapter covering the demographic and policy context of succession, extensive further reading lists, and diagrams of key concepts, all presented in a clear, modernized design to aid understanding and ease navigation.
