Complete Uniform Probate Code Now Available From CCH
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., October 18, 2001) – CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of business law information and software has published the Uniform Probate Code, a complete and up-to-date edition of the Code and related documents. Attorneys, law schools and libraries now have access to the most influential codification of probate law in American jurisprudence. As approved by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, this book is the most comprehensive, single-volume text on the Uniform Probate Code ever published. (1,600 pages, $85. For more information or to order, call 1-800-248-3248 or visit http://business.cch.com/onlinestore.)
Included in the CCH book is the Code’s Official Text and Comments. All amendments, revisions and updates have been fully incorporated. In addition to the Official Text of the Uniform Probate Code itself, the book includes the Comments of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. New and extensive history sections have also been added. The volume also includes a detailed topical index.
Model for Probate Laws
Since 1969, the Uniform Probate Code has served as the model for reform of America’s probate laws. The UPC has been enacted, in its entirety, in close to 20 states. Virtually every state that has not enacted the UPC in full has enacted selected, and sometimes many, provisions of the Code. Because few states enact the Comments to Uniform Acts, the ready availability of an authoritative source is essential.
The CCH book also includes, as Appendices, each of the Code’s freestanding Acts—14 separate Acts—in full text:
- Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act
- Uniform Durable Power of Attorney Act
- Revised Uniform Estate Tax Apportionment Act
- Uniform Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Act (1977)
- Uniform International Wills Act
- Uniform Intestacy, Wills, and Donative Transfers
- Uniform Multiple-Person Accounts Act
- Uniform Nonprobate Transfers on Death Act
- Uniform Simultaneous Death Act (1993)
- Uniform Statutory Rule Against Perpetuities With 1990 Amendments
- Uniform Succession Without Administration Act
- Uniform Testamentary Additions to Trusts Act (1991)
- Uniform TOD Security Registration Act
- Uniform Trustees' Powers Act
New Uniform Trust Code Included
Finally, the book contains the first commercial publication of the recently approved Uniform Trust Code (2000), in its entirety. This second Code is the first attempt on the national level to comprehensively codify the law of trusts.
The Uniform Trust Code contains an extensive commentary that will prove useful to practitioners even in states that do not immediately enact it. Given the frequent overlap between probate law and trust law, practitioners and students will find the inclusion of other Codes within one text particularly beneficial.
