- Create the necessary awareness for you to inquire about—and properly address—ART issues in your everyday practice
Most attorneys consider the practice of assisted reproductive technology (ART) law to be a specialized niche practice reserved for the few attorneys expert in surrogacy and gamete donation law. The reality is that most mainstream attorneys are already (or should be) practicing ART law in their otherwise routine law practices. An estimated 8.1 million U.S. citizens experience infertility and participate in some sort of assisted reproduction. These same clients populate the offices of family and estate planning attorneys with ART issues that most of those attorneys are not familiar with and of which they are not even aware.
The risk of remaining unaware is possible malpractice. This webinar will create the necessary awareness for all family law and estate planning attorneys to inquire about—and properly address—ART issues in their everyday practices.
