A forward looking casebook, Family Property Law focuses on new themes in family property law in the areas of wills, trusts, estates, and probates. The book recognizes the reform minded nature of the current era of family property law, including its changing notions of family and society, the acceptance of a partnership theory for assessing the financial aspects of marriage, and the need to reshape the law of donative transfers into a unity. The third edition presents the following new features: integrated coverage of the new Uniform Trust Code and of the American Law Institute approved parts of the new Restatements, important new case and statutory law, including Vermont s civil union statute and a sample certificate of civil union, the two Kuralt decisions of the Montana Supreme Court holding that Charles Kuralt s letter to his mistress constituted a holographic will, and fully integrated treatment of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001, which ultimately repealed the estate tax and the generation-skipping transfer tax.
