In the common law tradition, testamentary capacity is the legal term of art used to describe a person's legal and mental ability to make or alter a valid will. This concept has also been called sound mind and memory or disposing mind and memory.
Famous quotes containing the word capacity:
“The idea was to prove at every foot of the way up that you were one of the elected and anointed ones who had the right stuff and could move higher and higher and evenultimately, God willing, one daythat you might be able to join that special few at the very top, that elite who had the capacity to bring tears to mens eyes, the very Brotherhood of the Right Stuff itself.”
—Tom Wolfe (b. 1931)
