Borkowski’s Law of Succession gives full attention to this area’s rich and evolving case law, illustrating the relevance of the law to modern life; the central issues and academic debates surrounding inheritance are discussed fully. This revised edition covers new case law including Ilott v The Blue Cross and subsequent decisions, Payne v Payne, Legg v Burton, and Hand v George, and new legislation including the Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc) Act 2019. The text also looks at relevant Law Commission projects (in particular the recent consultation paper on Making A Will). Finally, there is discussion of the latest succession law scholarship.
