Presented and written in a friendly and engaging style, Dr Brian Sloan continues to update Borkowski's classic textbook which is perfectly pitched for today's undergraduate students. Considerable attention is given to the area's rich and evolving case-law, illustrating the relevance of the law to modern life; the central issues and academic debates surrounding inheritance are discussed fully.
New to this edition chapter nine, Family provisions, has been restructured to include Ilott vs The Blue Cross and subsequent case law, an expanded section on inheritance tax and more diagrams on key concepts and processes, all presented in a clear design to aid understanding and ease navigation.
Borkowski's Law of Succession is accompanied by online resources featuring a bank of useful and relevant web links, post-publication updated to the law and a range of companion multiple choice questions on the key areas of succession law.
