"...combines portions of the Restatement Third of Property (Wills and Other Donative Transfers), completed in 2011, and the Restatement Third of Trusts, completed in 2012."--Director's foreword.
Concise Restatements, compilations of provisions from The American Law Institute's influential Restatements of the Law, provide a compact and comprehensive overview of the area of law they encompass. Condensing the seven volumes of the Restatement Third of Trusts and the Restatement Third of Property (Wills and Other Donative Transfers) into a single user-friendly volume, this Concise Restatement sets forth the black-letter principles of the law of trusts and estates, including relevant explanatory commentary and helpful illustrations that illuminate the law and the policies underlying it. This handy one-volume Concise Restatement is ideal for practitioner reference or for use as a supplement in law-school courses in trusts and estates. This title is a joint publication of the American Law Institute and West Academic Publishing; it was compiled and edited by Professor Thomas P. Gallanis of the University of Iowa, who served as an Associate Reporter for the Restatement Third of Trusts.
