Survey Article


A survey of developments in any area of law requires a look backward and a look forward-a look backward at what the appellate courts have done with controversies that developed under existing statutes and decisions, and a look forward at what those courts will probably do with comparable controversies that develop under recently enacted statutes. Thus, in this survey of fiduciary law developments during the past year, we begin with reported cases that appear to be instructive. Classifying these cases under one heading or another is difficult, but an effort will be made to do so in the chronological sequence in which the issues typically appear.
