Capacity and Undue Influence, Second Edition

Availability: In Stock

Capacity and Undue Influence, Second Edition comprises important changes to the law of testamentary undue influence, which has evolved significantly over the last four years. Undue influence is looked at both under the equitable doctrine and under the common law.

It examines the legal capacities to make a will, make beneficiary designations, make gifts, and settle trusts and deals with the law of capacity, knowledge and approval, intention, and undue influence as those principles relate to the voluntary transfer of wealth. This updated version includes footnotes pointing to psychiatric studies and literature, which aid in understanding expert evidence on the topic. The laws of Canada, excluding Quebec, are covered in this treatise. For planners, it contains new and useful references to practice directions in the U.S. and UK that will fill gaps in Canadian law.
