Following is a vocabulary list for our upcoming test next week. You can expect that the test will include two essay tests worth 50% of the grade and 25 vocabulary questions from the following list, worth 2% each. The vocabulary questions will be some mix of multiple choice, matching, and fill-in-the-blank; I do not expect you to memorize and reproduce definitions verbatim. Be sure to review the essay writing slides I posted yesterday.
I’ll be out of the office on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, so if you have a question that needs a reply before early afternoon on next Thursday, please get in touch with me before early afternoon on Monday.

Read the following assignment and use the will form provided to create a will for the client. Be sure to add a self-proving affidavit that complies with Alabama law to the end so that the will is self-proving and will therefore be more easily probated.

In class today, we’ll be drafting your will assignment. Use the following fact pattern and form to draft a will for the client. Be sure to add a self-proved affidavit to the will so that the witnesses will not have to testify as to the authenticity of the will when it is admitted to probate. You can find the Alabama form for a self-proved affidavit in the Alabama Code (Alabama Code > Wills and Decedents’ Estates > Probate Code)
Using the form provided below, draft a will as described in the assignment. The first draft is due Tuesday, November 13, and the final draft is due Tuesday, November 20.
