Wills, Trusts, and Estates Administration presents the fundamentals of the field in a flexible approach that captures the complexities of modern estate planning while maintaining a clear, accessible style. The book’s self-contained chapters let instructors easily adapt the material to their own classes and students. Written by a lawyer with 30 years of experience in the estate-planning field, it covers practical issues that arise in law office—situations that students will actually encounter when they begin their careers. The focus is on issues that concern today’s typical American client, such as the trend towards an aging population, the growing population of families in second marriages, blended families and families in which the grandparents are raising their grandchildren, as well as those families that include non-married or same-sex couples. Current statistics concerning the aging population in the United States keep readers up to date on how current trends affect the estate planning industry.
