Publication Date: 2015-01-01
Modern law of succession in Ghana offers an authoritative exposition, penetrating analysis and a stimulating critique of the current law of succession in Ghana with suggestions for reform. This book covers both testate and intestate succession. A considerable portion of the book is devoted to the law of wills, a subject in respect of which there has hitherto been a notable dearth of legal literature in Ghana. The Wills Act of Ghana is subjected to an interpretation and appraisal and contrasted with the old rules under the English Wills Act, 1837. Customary law wills are also discussed in the light of the recent judicial pronouncements on the essential requirements. The new Interstate Succession Law is analysed in detail with attention to the important innovations and the myriad of problems in its train. Intestacy and its responsibilities under the customary law are discussed in the context of the statutory changes.
