2013 Skills Training for Estate Planners CLE Program Recap

This year, the Section added the Advanced Topics track to the Skills Training for Estate Planners CLE Program. This new concept was developed for attorneys to enhance their trust and estate knowledge. The speakers in the Advanced Topic track drilled down to more specific areas that are only briefly touched upon in the Fundamental Topics track. The two tracks had an occasional overlapping session where speakers such as Barbara Sloan, Randy Harris, and Christopher Hoyt presented on topics like Portability and Benefit Planning and Drafting. View the three-day schedule for this track in this link.

Attendees of the Fundamentals Program were eligible to receive 44 hours of CLE credit. The 52 participants this year were briefed on topics ranging from Special Needs Trusts to Estate Planning for Same Sex Marriages. Click here to view the weeklong schedule for this track.

This year's program would not have been possible without the support of our Liberty Sponsor, Interactive Legal, and our Broadway Sponsor, Bessemer Trust. A special thank you goes to our program co-sponsor, New York Law School, for hosting the program again this year. Email Bunny Lee if you are interested in sponsoring the 2014 program.

2014 Program - Save the Date!
Program Chairs Steve Akers, Professor William LaPiana, and Marc Bekerman have already begun planning the 2014 program, to be held July 13-18 at the New York Law School. Registration details will be available in the coming months.
