Prof. Evans to teach Wills & Trusts this summer at UNLV Law

I am excited to announce that I accepted an invitation to teach Wills & Trusts at UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law during the summer session.

This course covers intestate succession; testamentary capacity; execution, revocation, and component parts of wills; interpretation of wills; will substitutes; creation and interpretation of inter vivos and testamentary trusts; powers of appointment; professional standards and fiduciary responsibility. I will also lightly touch upon estate and trust administration.

Although this is not a course on document drafting, we will address ethical and practical considerations in drafting wills and trusts. The question we explore for every case is what the attorney could have done, should have done, or should not have done, in order to avoid litigation. Both the course and casebook, Contemporary Trusts and Estates (Susan Gary et al. , 2d. Aspen), approach the subject matter from an experiential, practical point of view to actively engage students in the material as practicing attorneys rather than law students.
