Washington Law Review


The author has twice previously summarized the community property law of Washington. In the eleven years since the most recent effort there have been enough changes to warrant a repetition of the task. Much of the discussion in the 1974 article is still appropriate, needing only reference to any later cases; accordingly, some parts of this article will essentially be an updated and revised version of the earlier article. There are also areas, however, in which the more recent cases prompt a new, more extensive, or modified analysis. The article undertakes that new analysis as well as incorporating the appropriately revised material from 1974, to provide a comprehensive discussion.
