It’s not an understatement to say that the past year has been unprecedented in estates matters, and our presenters cover it all. Whether you are a sole practitioner with a varied practice, or a practitioner in a firm specializing in estates and trusts law, this annual two-day program brings you the most important developments on what you want and need to know. Day One addresses the latest information on estates, trust, and capacity/elder law litigation, while Day Two focuses on the estate solicitor's practice, including planning, administration, and tax. Join with your fellow practitioners for important and illuminating discussions on this foundational practice area.
