Resolving the Conflict Between Jewish and Secular Estate Law

The Wills, Trusts, and Estates Law Professor blog just posted an law student's article on the topic of how to do an estate plan which does not violate halacha.

There are seforim, rabbinic websites, and journal articles in the Jewish world that discuss this topic and offer the solution presented in this article. But there are no secular legal sources that can be used as a resource for lawyers to assist their observant Jewish clients with this matter. There are also no articles which extensively address the issue of how the various solutions to the conflict between Jewish and secular estate law interface with secular law.

The Wills, Trusts, & Estates Prof blog post is HERE.

The pdf of the journal article, in the Hofstra Law Review, is HERE.
