Having the last word? Will making and contestation in Australia 1.06 Mb (Key findings: ARC Linkage Project, March 2015)

This research project is the culmination of a four year collaborative study co-funded by Public Trustees and the University of Queensland under an Australian Research Council Linkage Grant.

The project developed the first national data set on who does and does not make a will and why, as well as the nature of will contests in Australia and factors associated with their occurrence and resolution. The aims were to identify the prevalence of will making, the allocation principles used, the challenges faced by individuals and will drafters in making wills and the patterns and problems arising from contestation of wills.

The research findings are intended to provide an evidence base for public education campaigns, professional education, service and practice responses to meet specialised needs, and law reform.
