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 they die, and the use of trusts and other non-probate 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 non-community property states.
