Your Will - a thankless task? Making your Will involves consideration of giving all your money away and your death. Subjects with limited appeal to all but the most responsible members of society. This is why people often do not rush to make their own Will and lawyers focus on other people's Wills.
Your adult children and their inheritance At some stage, you must break it to your adult children that you will not be around forever. To their credit they will probably take it a lot better that you expect provided you have covered all the usual bases.

ABOUT THE LAW & DISORDER EZINE
The launch on 1 December 2006 of the Law and Disorder's Ezine was another step forward in the legal publications industry. Following in the footsteps of Halsburys, the All England Reports and Stroud's Judicial Dictionary.
Contributions are welcome. We are looking for short legal articles-300 words which attempt to be funny and informative. No section numbers, case names or focus on the law of any one country. The Editor's decision shall be final (especially with his competitors) but if it is good we would be pleased to include it in the Ezine which has a circulation of over 2,500 spanning 20 plus countries. Other funny material with a legal focus can be submitted however it must be good and brief as our readers have a very short attention span.
Send all contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org
