Succession - LAWS829

Succession law involves the study of wills, probate matters and inheritance. This unit is designed to explore the legal philosophical basis for the principles existing in this area of law, comprised of a combination of distinct categories of law such as property law and equity. In addition, an understanding of the formalities and requirements for valid wills, as well as the interpretative and constructive powers of the courts will be examined. This will equip a law student with the knowledge required to advise on estate planning matters and disputes relating to wills or on intestacy.
