About this item

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. As its title implies, Essentials covers only the core legal doctrines and does so in a concise, straightforward format that focuses on practical application rather than theory. The organizational structure of each chapter facilitates student learning by providing: (1) a clear explanation of the doctrine in plain English, (2) an excerpt of relevant statutory authority where applicable, (3) an illustration of the doctrine through a carefully-selected judicial opinion, and (4) an application of the doctrine in a problem set. Each judicial opinion is followed by a series of questions, as well as narrative answers to each question. 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.
  • Emphasizes problem-solving through detailed problem sets that allow students to apply newly learned legal doctrine to real-world situations.
  • Offers concise, yet comprehensive coverage. All core Trusts & Estates topics are covered in fewer than 650 pages.
