As in all aspects of the law, cases help to shape the application of the law by creating precedent. Specific cases are referenced in some of the books listed in this guide, but this information could potentially be out of date. To find case law relevant to specific situations, and to ensure it is up to date, patrons should use the LexisAcademic search engine available on our public computers. One of our reference librarians will be happy to give patrons a quick tutorial on how to use LexisAcademic. If you cannot come into the library, GoogleScholar is a good resource for finding relevant case law.
To help with your search we have listed a handful of cases that are relevant to common issues that arise during estate planning. This list is not definitive, and may be edited at any time.
