Abstract:     
The present state of the law in America governing the succession to decedents' estates is badly in need of reform. There is a growing awareness of the inadequacy of present probate procedure even among ordinary citizens unschooled in the law. The public awareness of the problems of probate and its demand for reform are apparent from the spate of articles and books which have dealt with probate "pains" and methods for avoiding them. This demand and the efforts of reform-minded scholars have culminated in a proposed solution--the Uniform Probate Code (UPC). This Author argues that the probate scheme of the UPC (at least as to the procedural article) is a major improvement in this area and should be adopted by the Kentucky legislature.
