Abstract:     
The eleven pioneer states that have adopted the Uniform Probate Code have amended its provisions in various ways. This Article reviews the changes made in article III, the central procedural section of the Code. The Authors analyze the import of these amendments, considering the interplay between the carefully drafted provisions of the Code and its policy of uniformly minimizing the judicial intervention and expense involved in the administration of estates. The Authors' analysis of these first enactments should prove helpful in those states currently considering adoption of the Uniform Probate Code as well as to lawyers and the courts in pioneer states.
