The sections include examples, exhibits, assignments, key terms, review questions, and case problems to aid and challenge the student in understanding the material along with essential probate and tax forms found in the Appendix. The development of an estate plan to dispose of assets and diminish or eliminate estate taxes through the effective use of wills and trusts is presented allowing the student to apply what has been learned throughout the textbook. Ethics is addressed to prepare the paralegal student for the necessity to adhere to a prescribed set of rules and guidelines that will apply to their work. The textbook is a good reference source for both the student and lay person interested in basic and understandable information on the subject of wills, trusts, and estate administration.
