This casebook takes a more experiential approach to the teaching of trusts and estates law. This first edition features recent cases and model documents in almost every chapter of the book; it also preserves many of the most famous and teachable trusts and estates cases.

The remainder of the book focuses on estate planning for low and moderate income individuals, professional responsibility issues as they arise in a trusts and estates practice, and traditional and contemporary cases and documents designed to expose students to the most important concerns that arise in a trusts and estates practice. Each chapter also features extensive notes and questions designed to help lead students through the major issues, and an appendix provides full versions of various historical "celebrity" wills and contemporary model trusts.

This comprehensive casebook is intended for a broad survey course on commercial law. This edition includes transactions under the Convention of International Sales of Goods. This book is built around carefully selected and edited cases, author notes, and selected problems. Though including landmark cases, the authors emphasize cases decided since 1990. These newer cases offer both a more sophisticated discussion of problems than usually found in earlier cases, as well as more current analyses of Code ambiguities and conflicting approaches to certain Code sections. Each chapter begins with advice on reading the relevant sections of the UCC and Convention of International Sales of Goods, making the statutes more understandable for students. Major topics covered include Underlying Code Principles, Sales, Commercial Paper and Electronic Transfers, Banking and Bank-Customer Relations, Documents of Title, and Secured Transactions.
The Third Edition of Concepts and Insights on Trusts and Estates makes complex doctrinal rules easier to understand by exploring the history and rationale behind those rules. The analysis is thorough, and focuses both on common law doctrines and statutory reforms--with an emphasis on the Uniform Probate Code and the Uniform Trust Code. Each substantive chapter closes with a set of exam-like problems designed to test understanding of the material included in the chapter. The authors also include thorough solutions to each of these problems. This is the only book in the field that combines thorough doctrinal analysis with more than 60 review problems, each with complete solutions.
