They are the legendary lore of the estate planning profession: Anna Nicole Smith’s challenge to the will of J. Howard Smith II; the battle between Brooke Astor’s son and grandson; and even the fight between Leona Helmsley’s grandchildren and her dog. They’re all famous estate feuds—so famous that even the general public knows about them. But estate contests don’t have to involve celebrities of multimillions of dollars to be fierce—or downright ugly. As the population ages, as family structures change, and as expectations shift, there is every reason to believe that estate disputes contests might increase in number and ferocity. To forestall all of the strife and expense that will contests can bring about, it is essential that estate planning practitioners know what they can do to bullet-proof the estate planning documents they create for clients. This 60-minute program, presented by two nationally recognized experts, will tell you what you need to know to insulate estate planning documents from challenges, and even prevent challenges from happening.

What You Will Learn

Topics to be covered include:

Planning your documents and getting organized;

Writing for clarity;

Avoiding legalese when possible;

Taking the reader’s point of view;

Common drafting mistakes an how to avoid them;

Reviewing you documents and getting input.

The Recently Approved Uniform Directed Trust Act: A View from the Chair and Reporter


Across the centuries, the law of trusts evolved on the assumption that full power to administer a trust would belong to a trustee. A directed trust departs from this tradition by granting a power over a trust to a person who is not a trustee. The fundamental policy question arising from the emergence of directed trusts is how the law of trusteeship should be divided among a directed trustee and trust director. The Uniform Law Commission has just finished work on the Uniform Directed Trust Act (UDTA), which provides clear, practical, and comprehensive solutions to all of the major legal difficulties in a directed trust. At the same time, the UDTA offers a host of technical innovations that dramatically improve on existing directed trust statutes, and that point to a variety of drafting practices for directed trusts that could be improved in all states. In this session, Professors Robert Sitkoff (Harvard) and John Morley (Yale), respectively the Chair and the Reporter for the UDTA drafting committee, will discuss the UDTA and what it means for directed trust practice.

Tuesday, March 13, 2018
12:30-1:30 pm ET
(11:30 am CT, 10:30 am MT, 9:30 am PT)
