This 6 page paper looks at a will which results in the creation of several trusts. Each of the bequests is considered to assess if they are valid. These include the bequest of shares to a class that does not yet exist, the use of a lump sum to deal with a vague purpose and the distribution of the residual of the estate to an uncertain class. The paper is written with reference to English law. The bibliography cites 3 sources.
