The law of succession is a rich and vibrant subject which has been attracting more legal and academic attention in recent years. With the introduction of the SQE, the subject, which incorporates Wills and Intestacy, Probate and Administration, and Taxation, is likely to grow further in importance and popularity amongst law students.

This textbook is designed to meet the needs of students by introducing them to succession law in a clear and succinct manner, whilst at the same time highlighting the many topics which are controversial and may be in need of reform. The textbook also explains key practical points, such as will drafting, applying for a grant of probate, and calculating inheritance tax.

To aid learning, practical examples are provided, along with an in-depth look at some key cases.

This new edition of The Law of Succession has been fully revised and updated and includes:

  • new and expanded sections on will formalities, duties of personal representatives and remedies for breach of duty by a personal representative
  • coverage of Covid-19-specific changes to will-making
  • wide-ranging procedural changes to the probate process introduced in November 2020
