University of Missouri Bulletin Law Series

Document Type



This study will deal with the present position of executory limitations of real and personal property in Missouri law, which will involve a consideration of their validity at common law and under the English statutes of uses and wills and under the Missouri statutes, and an analysis of the Missouri decisions. The doctrine that any limitation after a fee simple to which is added an absolute power of disposal is void, will be examined particularly, and an effort will be made to point out a way of escape from it.
