The needs of the Northern Ireland legal profession for up-to-date material in the areas of wills, intestacy and the administration of estates have been porrly serviced in recent times. This work provides comprehensive coverage of succession law within this jurisdiction.;The book incorporates the recent legislative changes in the area, in particular, the Wills and Administration Proceedings (NI) Order 1994 is considered in detail. It became effective on 1 January 1995, making a number of significant amendments to the law of wills. There is a useful ""noter-up"" of the 1994 Order and its predecessor, the Wills Act 1837, which illustrates at a glance both where changes have been made and also where the law is different from that in England and Wales.;The provisions of the draft Succession (NI) Order 1996, which is expected to become law in early 1997, have also been included. This Order proposes that the doctrine of hotchpot be abolished, that cohabitants of two years' standing be granted automatic locus standi to make a family provision claim and that spouses should only inherit on intestate deaths if they survive the deceased by 28 days. Substantial extracts of most of the key legislation in the area are included.
