Succession Law is the law governing the devolution of property on the death of its owner. This new book provides peerless analysis of this branch of law with extensive cross-referencing to related issues such as tax, private international law and trusts. It provides the reader with in-depth coverage of key Irish judgments, statutes and court rule provisions. The coverage is supplemented with Court Rule prescribed forms and many non-prescribed drafted forms, titles to grants of representation and checklists, which all readers will find invaluable aids to understanding and applying succession law in practice.

This highly practical book includes a chapter on will drafting and estate planning and provides 10 precedent templates covering most testator requirements:

  • Precedent 1: All to spouse, and should spouse not survive testator by 30 days, all to two children, as substituted residuary legatees and devisees – where child predeceases, gift over to any children of predeceased child alive at date of death of deceased
  • Precedent 2: Residue to children equally, who are minors at date of execution of will
  • Precedent 3: Professional executor charging clause and various devises and bequests
  • Precedent 4: Joint devise and various attestation clauses depending on disability of Testator
  • Precedent 5: Demonstrative and charitable legacies and life and remainder interests
  • Precedent 6: Will leaving legal right share to spouse with life estate of residue to spouse and special power of appointment amongst children of testator
  • Precedent 7: Wills - one dealing with estate of the testator in the State only and the other dealing with his estate outside the State
  • Precedent 8: Precedent Codicils
  • Precedent 9: Trust
  • Precedent 10: Discretionary Trust

The book's appendices, too, contain a wealth of practical information such as:

  • Client interview checklist
  • Prescribed Superior Court Forms
  • Non-prescribed Forms
  • Sample High Court contentious probate summonses
  • Law Society guidelines for solicitors drafting wills
  • Practitioner guidance on costs
