The following message is posted on behalf of the Estate Planning and Community Property Law Journal at the Texas Tech University School of Law:
The editors of the Estate Planning and Community Property Law Journal are currently seeking a law review style article (including footnotes) to complete Book 2 of its inaugural volume. It is permissible that the author previously published the article on SSRN or pursuant to a state bar seminar. Although the journal operates out of Texas Tech University School of Law, the article need not be confined to Texas law if it has a broad national appeal.
The article can be either academic or practical in nature, the subject matter of which can include: intestate succession, wills, trusts, testamentary substitutes, powers of attorney, inter vivos gifts, powers of appointment, joint tenancies, multi-party accounts, retirement accounts, annuities, life insurance, probate courts, probate proceedings and alternatives to formal proceedings, personal representatives, administrators, executors, trustees, trust and estate creditors, trust and estate beneficiaries, heirship proceedings, fiduciary litigation, income taxation of trusts and estates, federal and state transfer taxes (gift tax, estate tax, and generation-skipping transfer tax), alternative reproductive technologies, guardianships, medical powers of attorney, directives to physicians, anatomical gifts, long-term care insurance, disability income insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, elder abuse, marital property in community property jurisdictions, homestead and similar statutory asset protections, and historical, social, economic, international, ethical, professional responsibility and professional malpractice analyses related issues.
Do not miss the opportunity to be published with the only student-led estate planning journal in the nation. Please send all submissions or questions to Leslie.Obinegbo@ttu.edu.
