FORTHCOMING PROPOSAL ON SUCCESSION AND WILLS

By the time of reading, the long-awaited Commission proposal for an EU regulation on jurisdiction and applicable law in the field of succession and wills should either have been adopted by the Commission, or put on ice until the autumn. When it is adopted, the default applicable law will almost certainly be that of the habitual residence of the testator at the time of death, subject to the exception of his having expressly chosen the law of his country of origin if different. The Chancery Bar Association will comment on the proposal once adopted. For a detailed editorial, see:
