The 2010 Skills Training for Estate Planners CLE program was held July 12-16 at the newly renovated New York Law School, in the heart of the Tribeca neighborhood of lower Manhattan. A diverse group of 60 registrants from across the country took part in the annual 5-day intensive trust and estate course. RPTE Section leadership members Steve Akers, Bill LaPiana, Laura Twomey and Steve Gorin were a few of this year’s noted speakers.
Along with the return of last year’s well received fundamentals review on Sunday, attendees gained knowledge about topics ranging from drafting life insurance trusts to post-mortem planning. Attendees earned nearly 40 CLE credits for the course, and enjoyed networking with speakers and other colleagues at two cocktail receptions. The Section looks forward to planning the 2011 Skills Training program.
