Publication Date 26 Aug 2010
OverviewLeading succession authority Professor Leroy Certoma, an Acting Judge of the District Court of New South Wales, has completely revised and updated his enduringly popular textbook. With well over a decade's developments incorporated, this fourth edition of The Law of Succession in New South Wales has been eagerly awaited. Taking into account the recent substantial legislation changes and challenges implementing the Uniform Succession Law project in New South Wales, this bookÂ carefully addresses the considerable body of judicial consideration. Well-rounded in its coverage, The Law of Succession in New South Wales commences with a general discussion of the development and nature of the subject and refers briefly to transnational considerations increasingly common with globalisation. It then deals with intestacy, the law of wills, and family provision, and finally with the administration of deceased estates. Chapters follow the order in which the material is relevant in dealing with testamentary matters. Throughout, Professor Certoma's clear and concise analysis provides practical guidance to both students and practitioners.
