About the Program

As the traditional nuclear family has changed because of evolving social and legal norms as well as scientific and technological developments, estate planning professionals must be prepared both for issue spotting and thoughtful problem solving with regard to issues clients face, how existing trusts are interpreted, and how new estate planning instruments can be drafted for sufficient flexibility. This discussion will touch upon a potpourri of issues to consider, including: Marital Status (single, divorced, unmarried couples and polyamorous relationships); Defining Descendants (stepchildren, adoption, nonmarital children and assisted reproductive technologies); and other forms of Diversity (disability, LGBTQIA+, religious, racial and cultural inclusion) . . . and more!
