Study anticipates Law Commission report on intestacy and family provision

A new study has just been published, Inheritance and the family: Attitudes to will-making and intestacy, which will be of interest to all family lawyers.  The National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) and Cardiff University have completed a study to provide up to date information for the Law Commission in their review of intestacy and family provision.  It is anticipated that the Law Commission will take the research findings into account in its final report which is due to be published in autumn 2011.

The study involved a survey of 1556 adults across England and Wales.
