    Hello, could anyone provide guidance on answering the following essay style question:

    Testamentary freedom is often regarded as the ‘first principle of the law of wills’. However, will-makers should not be lulled into a false sense of security; successful family provision claims can undo the terms of a validly executed will, even when the will-maker’s intentions are very clear”.

    Do you agree with this statement? Discuss with reference to specific case law examples.

    Hi, I am also struggling with this question. I think I will give a brief introduction on Family Provision Act 1975 and testamentary freedom then analyse the case law under each category (so like 1 or 2 cases on spouse, cohabitees, adult children claimants etc). But I think the question is mainly asking for a critical discussion of testamentary freedom and the main focus should be on Ilot v Mitson. How did you approach the question or did you go and visit the lecturers or talk to other students about how they went about it? Any help will be much appreciated! Thanks
