ACTEC Appoints Prof. Naomi Cahn as New Law Journal Editor

The following is from an ACTEC press release:

The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) ... announced a new Editor for the ACTEC Law Journal, ACTEC Fellow Professor Naomi Cahn. Cahn succeeds Alyssa A. DiRusso, ACTEC Law Journal Editor 2020 – 2022.

An expert in family law, trusts and estates, feminist jurisprudence, reproductive technology, and aging and the law, Cahn is the director of the Family Law Center at the University of Virginia. Prior to joining the University of Virginia faculty in 2020, she taught at George Washington Law School, where she twice served as associate dean.  Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and New Yorker, and she has appeared on numerous media outlets, including NPR and MSNBC. In 2017, Cahn won the Harry Krause Lifetime Achievement in Family Law Award from the University of Illinois College of Law. Prior to joining the faculty at GW Law, Cahn practiced with Hogan Lovells in Washington, D.C., and with Community Legal Services in Philadelphia. Cahn’s first task as Editor is to oversee the ACTEC Law Journal’s Call for Papers on the topic of “Privacy in the Probate Field.”

The ACTEC Law Journal is a unique, high level academic journal which not only explores tax, trust and estate topics in depth, but deals with the practical consequences and applications of the rapidly changing rules in these areas of law. It is published three times a year and mailed free of charge to ACTEC Fellows, ABA-accredited law schools and board members of the National College of Probate Judges.
