Family Property Law: Cases and Materials on Wills, Trusts, and Estates

Professor Gallanis recently published a new edition of his casebook Family Property Law: Cases and Materials on Wills, Trusts, and Estates.

From the publisher’s website:

The Seventh Edition of this highly-regarded casebook continues its innovative emphasis on the connection between the law of trusts and estates and the changing American family. The Seventh Edition incorporates the most recent uniform acts from the Uniform Law Commission and the Third Restatements of the American Law Institute, and discusses the very latest “hot” topics, including digital assets, electronic wills, directed trusts, trust decanting, unitrusts, family offices, and donor standing to enforce charitable trusts. The authors of this book have long been at the forefront of law reform in trusts and estates, and this tradition continues under the authorship of Thomas Gallanis, who is the executive director of the Uniform Law Commission's Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Trust and Estate Acts. He was also an associate reporter for the Restatement Third of Trusts and has been the reporter of two uniform acts, most recently the Uniform Powers of Appointment Act (2013). The Seventh Edition emphasizes problems and questions to facilitate classroom discussion and analysis. Among many other things, the book teaches doctrine and policy, planning and drafting, case analysis and statutory interpretation.
