About This Book

Through the years, The Missouri Bar has published a succession of “Yellow Books” in response to significant changes in probate, trust, and estate legislation. Those publications have been valuable guides to new legislation and have been popular with Missouri attorneys. This publication builds on that legacy. In 2011, Missouri enacted significant trust and estate legislation as reflected in the title above. Technical corrections were adopted in 2012. Authors Scot W. Boulton, Harvard W. Muhm, and David English detail those legislative changes, explain their effect and importance, and provide background to put the changes in context.

This book is part of a new product line of guidebooks. These books will be smaller, more focused, and more easily updated than traditional MoBarCLE deskbooks. Some of these guidebooks will follow deskbooks that cover a broad perspective of a related area of the law; some of these guidebooks will precede those deskbooks. And some of the guidebooks will be conceived and published as stand-alone publications.

These guidebooks are available in a choice of formats: softbound print book, CD, or download. The electronic versions include sample form provisions in word-processing format. Purchasers can buy both the print and an electronic version for a discounted price. Order yours today!
