This course is about people, living and dead, their property, and their relationships. A more technical way to describe its content would be to say that it is about the law of gratuitous transfer at death or the law of succession. You will learn that the American law of succession is based on freedom of disposition. This is a survey course that examines the law and policy surrounding freedom of disposition. It aims to acquaint you with the pitfalls of practicing in this area with and without expertise. We will focus on drafting and professional responsibility as those issues arise throughout the course.
