  • Description
    A two part course on the legal process of drafting trusts and wills. Part one will focus on the drafting of trusts which represent a fiduciary relationship that signifies the transfer of property to trustees who manage the property for the beneficiary. The course is designed to expand the knowledge base of attorneys with little experience in trusts and reviews the various types of trusts and the legal restrictions that may be imposed as well as a list of clauses which may be included when drafting a basic trust. Part two turns the focus to the drafting of wills, which represent the wishes of a person who is no longer alive. As the creator of a will is no able to represent himself, wills must be drafted in strict accordance with procedures to ensure that it truly and fully represents the wishes of its author. Standard clauses as well as formats and the execution process are reviewed.
