Who should attend: Lawyers practising in the area of estate litigation. This course may also be of interest to wills and estates practitioners.
Learning level: Intermediate/Advanced
Disputes can arise both before and after death in the estate area and understanding how to resolve them through the courts, arbitration, or mediation requires knowledge of applicable legal principles and practical expertise. Our experienced faculty will share their academic knowledge of the law and their practice experience to further your skills as an estate litigator to handle all types of asset and estate-related issues. A wide range of topics will be covered that will touch on many of the very common contested issues that arise when asset planning has not yet been done, done in a questionable manner, or done validly but still permits legal challenge. You will leave this course better armed both in your knowledge and skills in estate litigation proceedings. Join us and be an effective litigator for dealing with contentious estate matters!

- understand the concept of trusts in family law claims
- receive an update on wills variation
