Vincent Ooi, of Singapore Management University – School of Law; Singapore Management University – Centre for AI & Data Governance, has made available for download his article, “Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way: A Guide to Setting Up a Will and Managing a Loved One’s Estate (Foreword)”, forthcoming. The abstract is as follows:
For some of us, death remains a subject that we would rather avoid discussing. We may believe that there is no hurry to consider the issue and that we have plenty of time left. However, the general reluctance in our society to engage with end-of-life matters can unfortunately result in us delaying the issue until it is too late.
A Will is not merely a legal document. It is an expression of our wishes, and a way for us to continue providing for the needs of our loved ones even after we are gone. It is true that even without a Will, the default rules of intestate succession will apply to distribute our estate. However, these rules are blunt and inflexible, and may not take into account the specific needs and circumstances of our chosen beneficiaries. Our care and love for our families should not stop with death, and a Will is an easy way to ensure that they continue to be looked after when we are no longer around to do so.
