Estate Planning: Introduction
This research guide is a selective guide to assist the legal researcher in conducting research in the area of estate planning, wills and trusts. It is not comprehensive in scope, but rather intended to act as a starting point for the researcher to find additional sources and relevant information. The guide attempts to lead the researcher to up-to-date items held by the Cooley libraries.
The guide is organized according to the topics listed to the left, in the guide outline.
In the sections of the guide focusing on print materials, the "location" provides the call number for a work. Clicking on the title takes a user to the relevant entry in the catalog. The letter abbreviations in parentheses reveal which campuses hold the title: “AA” indicates Ann Arbor, “AH” Auburn Hills, “GR” Grand Rapids, “L” Lansing, and "TB" Tampa Bay. Where possible, guide sections about statutes link to the appropriate law.
