Textbooks: Dukeminier, et al, Wills, Trusts and Estates (8th ed. Aspen Pub.) — and the Supplemental Materials, which can be downloaded from the Course Materials section of the TWEN website. The Supplemental Materials include separate files for (1) South Carolina Probate/Trust Code sections, (2) SC Code Miscellaneous Sections (non-SCPC), and (3) SC Cases.
Although there is a newer (9th) edition of the Dukeminier text, please note that we will use the 8th edition, which has been used in several previous classes. Thus, used versions should also be available, if that is your preference.
Monday: The Course Materials section also contains a list of assignments. For Monday, you should prepare assignment 1 (text pages 1-38) and be prepared to discuss. If you have trouble getting a book by Monday, I have included the pages from the first assignment in the Course Materials section on TWEN.
The Syllabus section contains the syllabus, with pertinent information about the class. Please read the syllabus before the first class. Please note that laptops may not be used in class.
If you are not prepared for any class, please give me a note. Otherwise, I will assume that you are representing to me and your classmates that you are prepared and ready to participate.
Please sign up for TWEN.
