Additional Book Details
(This is solely the WILLS AND TRUSTS LAW chapter from ANIMAL LAW--NEW PERSPECTIVES ON TEACHING TRADITIONAL LAW (Hessler et al).)
Practitioners of wills, trusts and probate law increasingly encounter animal owners who wish to provide for the care of their animals at their incapacity or death. Adding animal law cases to the course syllabus offers a fresh and engaging way for students to approach core legal concepts, as well as the opportunity to think creatively about the application and development of estate planning and probate law. For example, students might have to grapple with a case in which the testator tried to create an estate plan to provide lifetime care for her five beloved dogs, but family members challenged her will in order to gain access to the residue, without having to wait for the last dog to die of natural causes; or cases where courts have to determine whether to interject their own view of what constitutes a reasonable amount of money to leave for the care of the decedents companion animals, even if it conflicts with the testators expressed intent.
