South African Law of Succession and Trusts: The Past Meeting the Present and Thoughts for the Future comprises papers that were presented at a conference held in September 2012 at the University of Cape Town. The conference participants examined the considerable developments that have occurred in the areas of succession and trusts.

The book contains an interesting array of contributions that deal with aspects of ‘mainstream’ succession and trust law. In addition, in keeping with the constitutional recognition of African customary law and different systems of personal law, several contributions deal with the relevance of African customary law and religious law in contemporary South Africa, as well as with the harmonisation of divergent legal systems.

First published as Acta Juridica 2014. Also available as Acta Juridica 2000 to date online, or as part of Juta’s Electronic Law Journals 2000 to date on CD-ROM or online.
