The aim of this book is to provide samples of the types of questions found both at first degree level and on diploma courses.

This third edition has been extensively updated, including extra introductory notes and new chapters on the nature of wills and the mental element, formalities, revocation and alterations, and intestacy. The detailed coverage of family provision, construction and the administration of estates has also been expanded. The areas of mutual and privileged wills, and the growing number of decisions involving claims in negligence brought by disappointed beneficiaries against solicitors, are also incorporated.
