CLE on Anticipating Will Contests and How to Avoid Them

CLEThe American Law Institute is holding a webcast entitled, Anticipating Will Contests and How to Avoid Them, on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 at 1:00 – 2:00 pm Eastern. Provided below is a description of the event.

Why You Should Attend

Estate planners must always be on guard when drafting documents which may supply incentive for someone to contest a will. Anytime an individual would take more through intestacy or under a prior will, the potential for a will contest exists, especially if the estate is large.

What You Will Learn

Estate planners need to be able to recognize situations which are likely to inspire a will contest and take steps during the drafting stage to reduce the probability of a will contest action and the chances of its success. Join us for this 60-minute webcast that will examine:

    • Reasons to anticipate a will contest
    • Techniques to avoid contests
    • What provisions and language work best
    • Purposes and preparation of a will execution ceremony
    • Ante-mortem probate: Advantages and disadvantages

All registrants will receive a set of downloadable course materials to accompany the program.
