A vital resource for the probate law community
The Quinnipiac Probate Law Journal is a wholly student-run journal published quarterly by the Quinnipiac University School of Law. First published in 1986 as the Connecticut Probate Law Journal, the Journal was at that time the official reporter of probate decisions in the State of Connecticut. The Journal has also benefited from the longstanding cooperation of the National College of Probate Judges and the Connecticut Probate Assembly.
The Journal provides the legal community with a source of information and scholarship on the field of probate law. The distribution of a decedent’s estate can be a contentious and lengthy process that is subject to nuanced state laws. Our Journal examines the most common — and uncommon — subjects of this process, from issues encountered when probating a last will and testament, to the creative and sometimes questionable definitions of “real” and “personal” property.
We welcome perspectives from all experienced members of the probate law community. Each issue includes student notes and case comments, opinions from probate courts in Connecticut and other jurisdictions across the country, and scholarly articles by judges or practitioners.
