About this Unit
This unit has been replaced by 200641 - Wills and Succession. The law of wills and succession has an important impact on the devolution of property in society, in that, failure to make a valid will may result in a distribution of property on intestacy contrary to the deceased's intent. An understanding of the legal principles in this area of the law is crucial to the protection of assets and financial and estate planning. This unit examines the development of the rules of devolution of property on death, the current operation and application of these rules within New South Wales and comparisons with other jurisdictions. The essential legal and practical requirements for drafting a valid will are analysed together with an analysis of the formal provisions of the relevant acts.
