The fourth edition of Wills, Probate and Estates has been written to provide trainee solicitors with a clear and thorough understanding of current best practice in the area of wills, trusts, probate and the administration of estates.

The manual takes into account recent changes in legislation, particularly the Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Act 2009, the Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act 2010 and certain relevant changes to the Capital Acquisitions Tax Consolidation Act 2003.

The book outlines the basic elements of a will, familiarising trainees with the common law and statutory background enabling them to draft wills and simple trusts in accordance with statute and their clients' informed instructions.

The manual goes on to deal with obtaining the necessary grant of representation on the death of a client, either with or without a will, and administering such an estate. Wills, Probate and Estates provides succinct and practical advice, provided by solicitors for solicitors, tackling questions of practice and procedure that are of central importance not only for students on the Professional Practice Course, but also to practitioners who deal with any area of wills, trusts, probate or the administration of estates.
