Recommended by the Institute of Professional Willwriters, Parker’s Modern Wills Precedents is a well established and highly regarded publication, renowned for its clarity of drafting.

The new 7th edition provides private client solicitors and professional will draftsmen with a thorough understanding and working knowledge of the will drafting process and, as a result, the ability to draft better wills. In recent years private client drafting and advisory work has seen rapid and far-reaching changes, for which many practitioners require some reassurance.

Parker’s Modern Wills Precedents, 7th ed, has been thoroughly revised to include the numerous legislative changes that have impacted this area of the law. An essential resource for all private client advisers, it will help you to improve your precedents, draft better, more up-to-date wills and provide your clients with a more comprehensive service.
