    Wills, Trusts, and Estates in Context offers law school professors and students an accessible, student-friendly coursebook with narrative exposition, replete with significant caches of examples before and after cases. The narrative sections often build slowly in complexity, allowing students to learn the subject from the foundation up. The organization allows equal effectiveness for teaching Wills first or Trusts first, though the text—following tradition—presents Wills first. The book does not rely primarily on cases to teach doctrine. Instead of “hiding the ball,” Shepard offers students the ball and then “plays catch” with students by offering cases that guide an exploration and confirmation of the student’s understanding of doctrine.
