About Wills - Irish Precedents and Drafting

Primarily a practical precedent book, but containing much more than just precedents, Wills, Irish Precedents and Drafting will prove invaluable to all legal practitioners specialising in probate and succession law. Most chapters cover a constituent part of a will, and include a commentary which summarises the applicable law and gives pointers and advice on matters to be taken into consideration and pitfalls to be avoided. Clear and concise, the precedents are drafted in a straightforward, modern style and annotated where necessary. Full appendices are included containing the relevant statutory provisions - which will be of use to the practitioner when drafting a will.

The second edition has been revised throughout and updated to reflect new case law, the new Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Act and the new Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act. Many of the discussions have been extended, in particular the section on taking instructions for a will and the section on the principles for will-drafting the construction of wills. These extended discussions provide significant insight into the impact of recent developments. The revised layout has also been improved for ease of use, with page references replacing paragraph references for easy and quick use.
