Upcoming Continuing Legal Education Events
There are several interesting continuing legal education (CLE) events coming up in September and October 2008 that I wanted to mention as summer draws to a close and we look to the fall.
One is an Ontario Bar Association (OBA) full day program on September 23, 2008 commencing at 9:00 a.m. entitled “Trusts, Trustees, Trusteeships III – All you need to know and more”. This is the third year that this program on Trusts is running. The use of Trusts and Trust drafting are said to be the primary focus of this year’s program.
Topics include: Valuation Issues and Discretionary Trusts, The Effect of Bankruptcy on Estate Planning, Testamentary Trust Planning, The Use of Trusts as a Will Substitute, Charitable Gifts made by a Trust, Trust Variations, Insurance Trusts and Declarations, Judicial Supervision of the Exercise of Trustee Discretionary Powers and Trust Drafting.
I am pleased to be speaking on the topic on Trust Variations together with Justin de Vries.
This program is being held at the OBA Conference Centre, 20 Toronto Street, 2nd Floor, Toronto. Information on this program can be found on the OBA’s website www.oba.org/.
The other program is Hull and Hull LLP’s next Breakfast Series on October 8, 2008. Hull & Hull LLP’s long running Breakfast Series continues to provide members of the bar with presentations on topics of importance to estate practitioners.
At the October 8th meeting, the following presentations will be made: “The Will to Decide – What to do When Capacity is in Question” by Natalia Angelini, "Dealing with the Body, and other Estate Issues that Arise Immediately Upon Death" by Paul Trudelle and “Recent Caselaw Developments” by Ian Hull.
This breakfast meeting is also being held at the OBA Conference Centre, 20 Toronto Street, 2nd Floor, Toronto. Breakfast begins at 8:15 a.m. with the Presentations starting at 8:30 a.m. A fee of $30.00 ($28.30 + $1.70 GST) is payable to Hull & Hull LLP upon registration by cheque, VISA or MasterCard.
