Waggoner, Lawrence W.
Extent: 1 linear foot (4 boxes)
Lawrence Waggoner is considered a prominent figure in law reform in the field of wills, trusts, and future interests. Not only did Waggoner teach law for 44 years, he also had an influential role outside the classroom. He served as adviser for the Restatement (Third) of Trusts, reporter for the Restatement (Third) of Property, Wills, and Other Donative Transfers, director of research for the Joint Editorial Board for Uniform Trusts and Estates Acts, reporter for the Uniform Probate Code which he completed the revisions for in 2008, and one of his last publications was the last volume of the Restatement (Third) of Property: Wills and Other Donative Transfers. He presented the draft at the annual meeting of the American Law Institute, May 2010. This collection, Lawrence Waggoner Papers (Restatement of the Law), 1995-2010 and undated, specifically focuses on Waggoner's role as the reporter for the Restatement (Third) of Property (Wills and Other Donative Transfers) for the American Law Institute. The collection includes preliminary drafts (#4, 6, 9-14), council drafts (#2, 4-7), tentative drafts of the Restatement (#1-6), and cassette tapes regarding the Restatement of Property as well.
