Abstract

Pandemic time is a situation of increased human deaths, which cannot be left without the influence and interest of the law of succession. Some legislators have prepared and enacted appropriate facilities for the use of formal instruments for disposing of property upon death specifically for the pandemic period. The author looks at these solutions and wonders whether it is appropriate to deformalize the law of succession for the period after the pandemic, while presenting the statutory solutions of selected states.

Keywords: will, testament, testamentary formalities, pandemic, succession law
