Condensing the seven volumes of the Restatement Third of Trusts and the Restatement Third of Property (Wills and Other Donative Transfers) into a single user-friendly volume, this Concise Restatement sets forth the black-letter principles of the law of trusts and estates, including relevant explanatory commentary and helpful illustrations that illuminate the law and the policies underlying it. This handy one-volume Concise Restatement is ideal for practitioner reference or for use as a supplement in law-school courses in trusts and estates. This title is a joint publication of the American Law Institute and West Academic Publishing; it was compiled and edited by Professor Thomas P. Gallanis of the University of Iowa, who served as an Associate Reporter for the Restatement Third of Trusts.
