Book Review: Estate Planning Cases, Statutes, Text and Other Materials, 63 Yale Law Journal 1198 (1954)
The only thing that keeps the publication of this book from being big news is the book itself. It is the product of at least six years of experimentation by one of the country's most distinguished property professors; it is the first coursebook out in the much publicized field of estate planning; it has a potential market limited only to the nation's population of law schools; it has powerful backing from those professional groups who usually confine their contacts with legal education to criticism-all the ingredients of scholarship, originality and public acceptance which should mark it as a rare and influential contribution to the teaching literature of the law.
It is not.
