The third edition of this highly respected work examines key issues in succession law from a variety of perspectives: national, international, historical and comparative. All Australian jurisdictions are covered in 17 comprehensive chapters which include statutory extracts to demonstrate different approaches. Case summaries show the forms of judicial argument used in succession law and give a clear analysis of judgments. Notes and questions in the book provide a deeper understanding of the material.
This updated and revised edition is presented in an attractive new internal design that clearly distinguishes different features in the book. Students also have access to a web quiz with questions relating to the book on http://www.lexisnexis.com.au/LNConnect.
