Revocation of Wills in South African Private International Law


The July 2007 ICLQ contains an article by Prof Jan Neels on the revocation of wills in South African private international law with reference to other Commonwealth jurisdictions and the provisions of the Hague Convention on the Conflict of Laws Relating to the Form of Testamentary Dispositions (1961). Specific reference is made to section 3bis (1) (d) of the South African Wills Act 7 of 1953, which is partially based on article 2 of the Convention, and to revocation of wills by marriage and divorce.

Those with online access to the ICLQ can download the article.
