Thoughts on Estates and Future Interests?
« on: February 15, 2006, 06:46:01 PM »
We are about to start the lovely Estates and Future Interests.
Does anyone have a good supplement for them? By "good" I mean small and short.

I already have the E&E and the Understanding Property. But if there is anything out there specifically on EFI that would help other than what I already have...lay it on me...

Thanks in advance

My prop prof made his own supplement, and we used that. It was very plain language and full of practice problems. I can e-mail that to you if you want. If so, send me a message with your e-mail address and I'll get it out to you. Also, the other section used Wendel and Nelson's Possessory Estates & Future Interests Primer, 2d, and everyone seemed to like it also. You can buy that through the Westlaw online bookstore. It's short and sweet too. Also, when I looked to see if it was available on the Westlaw online bookstore, I saw a workbook that looked pretty good. I found both by key word searching estates and future interests primer on that site.

I've liked the property E&E so far.

Learned: Where do I find those on Lexis? We don't have passwords for it yet (Bastids!) Another few weeks until we get full access.

Kentucky: Thanks, I sent you a message


Jacy: I said that I already had the E&E. I was looking for something specific on E&FI.

Sorry about that!  I obviously didn't read very closely.

I used the CALI lessons and made my own flash cards. I couldn't have passed property without those tools.
