Using an effective learn by doing approach, Wills, Trusts, and Estates for Legal Assistants emphasizes examples and applications, and includes hundreds of real  life situations with detailed explanations. Students understand what the  rules of law mean and how they apply in a real world context. The  complete topic coverage introduces wills and trusts, intestate  succession, estate administration, nonprobate transfers, and other  estate planning issues such as taxes and malpractice. A balanced,  experienced author team skillfully blends theory with practice and  extensive pedagogy reinforces the text, with marginal terms and a  glossary, ethical points, checklists, practice tips, and sample forms.  The instructor's manual provides a summary of chapters, a model course  outline, exam questions, assignment ideas, exercises, and a research  guide for wills, trusts, and estates.
