The Cardozo Law School in New York City is sponsoring an academic conference entitled Trust Law in the 21st Century on September 19, 2005. Profs. Melanie B. Leslie and Stewart Sterk are chairing the conference.
The conference will address three rapidly evolving issues in trust law:
(1) the growth of the perpetual trust, fueled by the demise of the Rule Against Perpetuities,
(2) the move by many states and offshore jurisdictions to increase the availability of trusts for asset protection purposes, and
(3) changing conceptions of fiduciary duty.
Because of generous support from the Jacob Burns Institute for Advanced Legal Studies and the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel Foundation of Los Angeles, California, there is no cost to attend the conference. Advance registration is recommended.
