In our flagship estates and trusts law program, we make sure there's something for everyone, from the sole practitioner with a varied practice to the practitioner in a firm specializing in estates and trusts law. Our presenters are experienced experts and academics, and they analyze the trends, innovations, and best practices in this continually evolving area of the law. Day One addresses the latest cases and developments for estate, trust, and capacity/elder law litigators, while Day Two focuses on the estate solicitor's practice, including planning, administration, and tax.

  • Consider inter-jurisdictional issues in estate litigation
