Article on Incentive Trusts

Incentive trustsVictoria J. Haneman recently published an Article entitled, Incorporation of Outcome-Based Learning Approaches into the Design of (Incentive) Trusts, 61 S.D. L. Rev. 404 (2016). Provided below is an abstract of the Article:

Incentive trusts incorporate financial incentives and disincentives designed to encourage the positive behavior of a beneficiary.
