This course covers the distribution of a property when a person dies without a will, the drafting and administration of wills, limits on a person’s power to determine what happens to her property when she dies, and the use of trusts and other nonprobate devices to create and control future interests or the passage of property at death. The course emphasizes California law and will prepare students for the California bar - but it also covers the laws of noncommunity property states.
