The American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education (ALI CLE) and the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) are cosponsoring a telephone seminar and audio webcast entitled, Current Ethical Issues for Estate Planners, on Wednesday, October 9, 2013. Provided below is a description of the event:
The ethical challenges that an estate planning lawyer faces differ greatly from those encountered by other lawyers: representation of more than one family member, a client who is both a fiduciary and a beneficiary, communicating with family members who do not have legal representation, confidentiality issues, etc. Such varied scenarios not only lead to uncommon ethical problems, but also increase exposure to malpractice claims. Register today for this timely program, taught by Fellows of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, featuring practical, real-world scenarios, so you can learn what you need to know to properly, competently, and ethically handle your clients' unique situations.
