Impact of the EU Succession Regulation on Statutory Inheritance

Mariusz Załucki



The new EU Succession Regulation has caused a series of controversies. Doubts are linked, inter alia, to the application, as a result of the Regulation, of national laws, which in many places differ from each other. One such area is statutory inheritance. Diverging national rules may result in unsatisfactory consequences of the application of the Regulation. The paper presents this area and looks for a solution that could be applied in the future. According to the author, such a solution is necessary and will allow further integration of the EU succession law.
