Who should attend: Lawyers practicing in the area of wills, estates and trusts
Learning level: Fundamental/Intermediate
There are two dangerous myths in wills practice: 1) that anyone can draft an effective will; and 2) that there is such a thing as a "simple will."
Ensure you avoid the pitfalls that come along with these myths by learning an effective, systematic process for serving wills clients. Over two days, workshop leaders will take you step-by-step from the client interview through to drafting the will, identifying tips for avoiding claims and complaints along the way.
You will gain confidence in pinpointing key issues, understanding where a will fits into an estate plan, and recognizing broader estate planning concerns when drafting a will.
Join us and improve your wills practice procedures today.
