Abstract
The Article uses recent scholarly criticism of the undue influence doctrine in the United States toward a rigorous examination of South African courts' engagement with testamentary undue influence. The Article addresses the question whether family protectionism, which the critics of the doctrine in the US have identified as its Achilles heel, is evident also in South African jurisprudence on the matter.
