Since the publication of the 6th edition, principal legislative changes in Queensland’s succession laws have been those necessitated by the creation of civil partnerships under the Civil Partnerships Act 2011 (Qld). The changes brought about by the Succession Amendment Act 2006 have so far resulted in a comparatively small number of cases interpreting this legislation, which is a strong indication of the success of those provisions. In addition to taking into account any legislative and case law amendments, this edition has therefore involved revising and making improvements to the existing content.

Lee’s Manual of Queensland Succession Law 7th edition has been revised throughout to include more case references, particularly from other States, so as to facilitate the use of this work as the starting point for detailed legal research.  There has also been an effort to increase and improve cross-referencing between related areas of succession law, and to more detailed or advanced legal literature.
