2014 Scheduled Live Courses

The 29th Annual Wills and Probate Institute

Thursday and Friday, September 18-19, 2014
(Register NOW)

The 29th Annual Wills and Probate Institute is packed with important topics for probate attorneys and practitioners. Past attendees are unanimous in recommending the Institute for its outstanding speakers, comprehensive and thorough coverage of topics, and for the opportunity to obtain virtually an entire year of required continuing education hours in a single two-day program. This year's Institute provides up to 13.5 MCLE hours and includes 2.5 hours of legal ethics. 

Come learn how to navigate within the new Estates Code, how to deal with disclaimer statutes, how families are defined and dissolved after the fall of DOMA, and obtain tips for conducting estate planning for same sex couples and blended families. Get the latest on veterans benefits, revocable and by-pass trusts, planning for the transfer of non-probate assets at death, understanding homestead and other exemptions for the elderly and disabled, and intestate succession. The Institute also includes numerous other important sessions: the ever-popular Case Law Update, a panel on elder abuse, who has standing in probate court, the role of ad litems in contested guardianship proceedings, and setting and achieving realistic expectations for mediations. 

Obtain all your MCLE hours in two days or, if your schedule doesn’t permit you to be gone for two days, come for just one. Regardless of whether you come for the entire or just part of the Institute, you’ll obtain practical tools and techniques you can apply immediately to help best serve your clients.
