New edition of ABA book focuses on estate planning in uncertain times

CHICAGO, March 18, 2021 – A new book from the American Bar Association, “Flexible Trusts and Estates for Uncertain Times, 7th Edition,” addresses how to navigate change and uncertainty that arise when a property owner plans for the disposition of his or her estate. Changes in laws, interpretations, procedures and circumstances as well as personal uncertainty due to births, deaths and unforeseen health concerns may make estate planning documents out-of-date. 

This new edition refines and expands the analysis that experienced practitioners have come to expect from this title and includes more than 150 sample forms and more than 20 complete wills, trusts and other instruments, with extensive analysis of the options for completing them.
