Wills and Estates Law Update
Key issues in Wills and Estates
This seminar will provide participants with an update on the key issues in Wills and Estates. Challenges to testamentary capacity and family provision claims remain a major concern for the Court. We will explore the major steps in obtaining a grant of probate and the role, rights and powers of the executor, with particular attention to increasingly used FPA procedures. We will equip you with insights from the Bench and an understanding of best practice to protect against challenges to provisions, administration, grant, appointment of executors, and your own professional conduct.
