Florida Wills, Trusts, and Estates: Cases and Materials, 1st ed.
This unique casebook examines wills and trusts by focusing on Florida law. The laws governing wills and trusts continue to be state-law driven despite widespread adoptions of uniform codes, such as the UPC and UTC. We believe there is much to be gained by studying the laws of one state as a whole, and Florida law is particularly well suited for studying this area of the law. Florida has a well developed probate code and its common law wills and trusts decisions address issues in fascinating factual situations that students find engaging. Moreover, in 2006 Florida adopted its version of the UTC referred to as the Florida Trust Code (FTC), effective July 1, 2007, making Florida a perfect platform for studying modern trusts law and practice.
