The Law Commission published its consultation paper “Making a Will” in July 2017. The consultation closes on 10 November 2017.
The law relating to wills largely relates back to the Wills Act 1837. Join us for a lively discussion within a workshop format and to have your say on the proposed amendments to:


 The test for testamentary capacity (Banks v Goodfellow or change to MCA 2005 for all cases);
 The test for statutory wills – does the best interest test in s.4 MCA 2005 work;
 Supported will-making – is this desirable or feasible;
 Formalities – advantages and disadvantages of change and of allowing for electronic wills;
 Protecting vulnerable testators – should there be a statutory doctrine of testamentary undue influence;
 Ademption and the disparity between disposals by an attorney and by a deputy.
