Product description

Presupposing a basic understanding of wills and intestacy law, Law of Executors and Administrators targets the appointment, duties, powers and entitlements of executors and administrators (collectively ‘personal representatives’). It represents the first Australian text dedicated to the law governing personal representatives, and to this end is detailed and comprehensive. Context is given to the coverage by reference to the position in other common law jurisdictions, as well as against the backdrop of academic and practitioner commentary, and recommendations for law reform.
