The fifth edition of Wills and Estates thoroughly examines the law and practice surrounding estate planning, administration, and litigation. This resource is divided into three parts, each section providing an in-depth exploration of key subjects and “grey areas” that exist in estate law, including wills, powers of attorney, trusts, and mediation.

Drawing from 20 years of experience in the field of estate law and estate disputes, author Derek Fazakas approaches each topic from all angles, identifying problem areas and proposing solutions.

This edition features updated policies, processes, cases, and legislation (Bills 161 and 245). Content is illustrated through “real-life” examples, descriptions of law clerk tasks, and sample documents.
