Written by well-recognized scholars in the field, Wills, Trusts, and Estates: The Essentials by Reid Weisbord, David Horton, and Steven Urice provides a unique platform for teaching Trusts and Estates as an accessible, engaging area of the law.

The problem sets, which are heavily emphasized, simulate the practice of law in a realistic T&E setting. Key Features: Makes a challenging course uniquely accessible. Plain English explanation of legal doctrine at the beginning of each section helps ensures students have a basic foundation of substantive knowledge, allowing the professor to focus classroom discussion on applying the doctrine. Delivers well-edited judicial opinions in a format that allows students to achieve mastery of the materials before entering the classroom.
