HD Succession Law Exam Notes
Subject notes for Monash LAW4311
Extremely detailed notes that I used in the exam to get an overall mark of 80-HD. These notes would be useful for the assignment as well.
This subject is content heavy, hence the extra long exam notes. I have included a table of contents at the beginning of the notes as well as at the beginning of each topic to make navigating through these notes easy during the exam!
Good luck :)
