Article Directions Swiss-inheritance law-changes deals with the issues of the wider rights of inheritance law in force in Switzerland. The article is thus an attempt to describe the influence of the most significant revision of choices in Swiss inheritance law (including those relating to the following : equal rights for descendants of heredity, changes in the inheritance by a spouse, inheritance rights of a surviving spouse, registered same-sex partners) at present condition of inheritance law in this country. Analysis of the above solutions allowed to reply the question: what conditions underlay the choice of orders of succession operating in Switzerland, and what conditions determine a wide selection of the class of persons appointed to inherit. The analysis of the descendant rights vested in those connected with the testator only by factual relations, and also detailed arrangements within contractual orders of succession, where a wide choice - after decades of application - is found in Swiss law, may provide a clue to the Polish legislature as to the possible future legislative changes.
