The law of succession, which has been traditionally confined to domestic limits, is becoming a frequent topic of discussion in international forums, due to the increasing mobility of people and assets. Freedom of testation is in the center of all initiatives tending to harmonize or at least approximate legislations in this field, even if, to date, efforts in this direction have focused on international private law. In April 2010, an international conference was held in Barcelona, where the scope of freedom of testation was checked against the limitations imposed by human rights, by domestic rules granting forced shares and other rights to the deceased's next of kin, and by provisions dealing with inheritance agreements. The conference stemmed from the new Catalan legislation and proceeded to cover other national systems. These reports, together with other contributions by experts from various countries, address continental Europe's domestic regulations, the English common law system, and Eastern European solutions. A general overview on the need and opportunity of convergence in the law of succession and on the proposed EU Regulation on Successions and Wills - as an initial move towards harmonization - are broached from the outset. The diversity of solutions that this volume presents confirms its convenience.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Law - Comparative Legal Systems, Comparative Law, grade: 29/30, University of Trento, course: Seminar zum russischen Recht, language: English, abstract: This assignment deals with the law of succession in Russian Federation and Germany. The law of succession does not seem very interesting to the majority of the law students – and wrongly so! It is one of the oldest areas of law which roots go back almost to the Stone Age. It is based on the fundamental human right of property since it obviously does not exist in societies where the individual right to own and to transfer the ownership is not recognized by law or custom. In addition, this topic never stops being actual because nowadays almost everyone is confronted with it sooner or later by inheriting and/or bequeathing. In case of Russia, we can additionally observe the particular situation of a state challenged to establish a new legal system after the collapse of the Soviet Union taking into account human rights in a relatively short period of time. The law of succession as part of legal order had also to be adapted to the new reality determined by the free market economy and developed rapidly. Finally, Germany is one of the leading European countries with a very elaborated codification and broad scope of the judicial review whose example among others is bound to influence the Russian legal experts searching for time-tested patterns and trying to combine foreign experience with the peculiarities of the own country in order to create modern legislation. In the following, we will overview the historic development of the law of inheritance both in Germany and Russia. After this, we will analyze the current legal situation in both countries, attempting to establish its relationship with the respective constitutional law as well as trying to show the similarities and find possible explanations for the differences. The conclusion will then summarize the findings obtained.

This book is one of the first to link company law to the law of succession by concentrating on family businesses. It shows that, to understand the legal framework underlying the daily operations of family businesses, one needs legal analysis, empirical data, psychological and sociological knowledge. The book works on the premise that, since many businesses have been founded by families, practitioners need to develop an understanding of the legal background of such businesses and build up experience to be able to create contracts, trusts, foundations and other legal mechanisms to give shape to systems and procedures for the transfer of shares and control within the family. Comparing the national legal order, techniques, and mechanisms in a range of countries, the book examines parallel developments in these fields of law across the world. Finally, it demonstrates the room for companies, shareholders and the members of a family to develop individual solutions within the legal framework for transferring businesses and shares to the next generation.

Holdsworth, William S., and C.W. Vickers. The Law of Succession, Testamentary and Intestate. Oxford: B.H. Blackwell, 1899. xiv, 311 pp. Reprinted 2004 by the Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 978-1-58477-471-6. ISBN-10: 1-58477-471-1. Cloth. $125.* Intended as an introductory treatise for law students, this treatise serves as an excellent introduction and a useful reference. And as one would expect from a book co-written by Holdsworth [1871-1944], it goes beyond the law of his day to analyze its historical development. In addition to a valuable introductory chapter on the history of succession, the authors enrich their discussion in the main text with observations on the ways its principles developed over time in response to particular conditions. Their functionalist view, which owes much to Maitland's example, enabled them to create a sophisticated text that avoids the pitfalls of contemporary formalistic and "scientific" treatises.

The forfeiture rule, in common law, states that a person cannot inherit property from someone whom he or she has unlawfully killed. The problem is what should happen to the inheritance where the dead person has died intestate and the potential heir is excluded because he or she has killed the dead person. This problem was highlighted by a Court of Appeal case in 2000, in which the killer's children were, in effect, disqualified from the inheritance because of their parent's wrongdoing. The Law Commission issued a consultation paper on this topic in 2003 (No. 172, ISBN 0117302589). This report discusses the responses and sets out the Commission's final recommendations. The Commission recommends a "deemed predecease" rule: where a person forfeits the right to inherit from an intestate through having killed that intestate, the rules of intestate succession should be applied as if the killer had died immediately before the intestate. The Commission also recommends that this approach should extend to persons who have disclaimed an inheritance, or who have died unmarried and under 18 years of age, but leaving children. The report also includes a draft Law Reform (Succession) Bill, with explanatory notes.

In both the literal and metaphorical senses, it seemed as if 1970s America was running out of gas. The decade not only witnessed long lines at gas stations but a citizenry that had grown weary and disillusioned. High unemployment, runaway inflation, and the energy crisis, caused in part by U.S. dependence on Arab oil, characterized an increasingly bleak economic situation. As Edward D. Berkowitz demonstrates, the end of the postwar economic boom, Watergate, and defeat in Vietnam led to an unraveling of the national consensus. During the decade, ideas about the United States, how it should be governed, and how its economy should be managed changed dramatically. Berkowitz argues that the postwar faith in sweeping social programs and a global U.S. mission was replaced by a more skeptical attitude about government's ability to positively affect society. From Woody Allen to Watergate, from the decline of the steel industry to the rise of Bill Gates, and from Saturday Night Fever to the Sunday morning fervor of evangelical preachers, Berkowitz captures the history, tone, and spirit of the seventies. He explores the decade's major political events and movements, including the rise and fall of détente, congressional reform, changes in healthcare policies, and the hostage crisis in Iran. The seventies also gave birth to several social movements and the "rights revolution," in which women, gays and lesbians, and people with disabilities all successfully fought for greater legal and social recognition. At the same time, reaction to these social movements as well as the issue of abortion introduced a new facet into American political life-the rise of powerful, politically conservative religious organizations and activists. Berkowitz also considers important shifts in American popular culture, recounting the creative renaissance in American film as well as the birth of the Hollywood blockbuster. He discusses how television programs such as All in the Family and Charlie's Angels offered Americans both a reflection of and an escape from the problems gripping the country.
