This collection of articles is a reflection of the wide range of interests held by estate and trust lawyers. The issues discussed include: art law in the context of an estate or trust; questions of control over the body itself, including the futuristic issue of the status of frozen embryos in relation to an estate; broad trusts' issues, including the place and nature of the trust in both civil and common law jurisdictions; and the resolution of family property concerns in relation to matrimonial law, forced heirship laws, or family provision on death. Other articles consider practical questions such as transnational tax planning, planning for the transition of a family business on death, retirement planning and the management of collective investments. The work takes a comparative approach, examining each issue from the perspective of a number of different jurisdictions. This collection arises from the annual meetings and discussion of members from the International Academy of Estate and Trust Law.
