 Will (law)
In the law, a will or testament is a document by which a person (the testator) regulates the rights of others over his property or family after death.
A very common error (for example) in the execution of home-made wills in England is to use a beneficiary (typically a spouse or other close family members) as a witness, although this has the effect in law of disinheriting the witness regardless of the provisions of the will.
Under laws of certain states of the United States of America, a will cannot be used to disinherit a surviving spouse, who is entitled to at least a portion of the testator's estate.

 FindLaw: Legal Learning: Information Necessary for Law School Survival
It is surprising to many law students that the case they read on their first day of law school is no easier than the one they will read on their last day of law school.
Almost all law schools teach their first-year students how to "brief." This is strange to me because the information in most traditional brief formats is the information that would be useful to you as the practicing lawyer in the paragraph above, but not to you as the law student.
You will probably modify your outline as you go through the cases, but this technique focuses you on the structure of the area of the law you are studying right from the beginning.

 Wrongful Termination of At Will Employment
Many people are employed "at will", meaning that they don't have a formal employment contract with their employer and state law thus permits their employment to be ended at any time, or that they do have a written contract under which contains an "at will" clause to that same effect.
Following the creation of these anti-discrimination laws, it became possible for employees to argue that their terminations were "pretextual" - that is, although their employers were citing lawful reasons to terminate their employment, their employers were actually motivated by unlawful discriminatory motives.
Some states will permit an "at will" employee to bring a lawsuit on the basis that the employer violated an implied covenant of "good faith and fair dealing" in association with the termination decision.

 Arizona Probate Law - FAQ
If an Arizona resident dies with a Will that complies with the requirements of Arizona probate law, the person is said to have died "testate," which means he or she has a valid Will and the decedent's probate assets pass to the people or entities named in the Will.
A.R.S. Anybody who prepares a holographic Will should write the entire Will in his or her handwriting to prevent any question as to whether the "material provisions" are in the testator's handwriting.
Property that passes by operation of law or by contract is a "nonprobate asset" and achieves the frequently desired status of "avoiding probate." Nonprobate assets are usually not affected by a Will or an Arizona probate.

Decisions helpful to the at-will employee might, for instance, allow suits for tortious interference with at-will employment in the same way suits for tortious interference with contract can be brought.
Yes, and that is why looking at federal common law, rather than state law, is the right approach to deciding whether an at-will employment relationship is sufficiently similar to a contract to come within Section 1981's protections.
And doing so will also ensure courts use the right reasoning, so their decisions are not as vulnerable to reversal on appeal.

 About Pennsylvania's Living Will Law
The law provides a statutory basis for individuals to declare their "will" regarding the use of artificial life support devices or extraordinary medical treatment-prior to the time when they become terminally ill and/or lapse into an irreversible coma or permanent unconsciousness.
Living will declarations are intended to ease the burden on aggrieved family members who-in the absence of such a "will"-could be faced with making difficult medical decisions for their loved ones.
The law requires the state to pay any uninsured costs for such life support treatment for terminally ill pregnant women.
