This text deals with the law of capacity, knowledge and approval, intention, and undue influence as those legal principles relate to the voluntary transfer of wealth. The capacity to make a will, the capacity to make beneficiary designations, the capacity to make gifts, and the capacity to settle trusts are examined in this book. Undue influence is looked at both under the equitable doctrine and under the common law. The laws of Canada, excluding Quebec, are covered in this treatise.

New in this edition

This edition contains important changes to the law of testamentary undue influence which has evolved significantly over the last four years. It also includes footnotes pointing to psychiatric studies and literature which aid in understanding expert evidence on the topic.  For planners, it contains new and useful references to practice directions in the US and UK that will fill in gaps in Canadian law.
