About Wills - Irish Precedents and Drafting
The second edition of Wills, Irish Precedents and Drafting has been updated to reflect new case law, the new Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Act and the new Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act.

Primarily a practical precedent book, but containing much more than just precedents, this book will prove invaluable to all legal practitioners specialising in probate and succession law. Most chapters cover a constituent part of a will, and include a commentary which summarises the applicable law and gives pointers and advice on matters to be taken into consideration and pitfalls to be avoided. Clear and concise, the precedents are drafted in a straightforward, modern style and annotated where necessary. Full appendices are included containing the relevant statutory provisions - which will be of use to the practitioner when drafting a will.
