While continental and comparative lawyers have recently rediscovered succession law as an area of immense practical importance deserving greater academic attention it is still a very much neglected field in England.

This books aims specifically to reinvigorate the English debate on succession law by bringing together academics and practitioners whose work concerns or touches on current issues in the field and questions of fundamental importance.

It will be of great interest to both academics and practitioners whose work engages with succession law issues, and non-UK comparative lawyers.
