Law professors are finding creative ways to use Deborah L. Jacobs’s new book, Estate Planning Smarts: A Practical, User-Friendly, Action-Oriented Guide in their classrooms. Planning ahead for Fall and Spring courses, they are adopting Estate Planning Smarts as an alternative or complement to a traditional casebook.
Widely praised for its plain English approach, this book has another virtue while the estate tax is in flux: Jacobs issues updates that can be downloaded from the book's Web site www.estateplanningsmarts.com, and tweets at http://twitter.com/djworking. Available through booksellers, including Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
