Beyond Will and Estate Planning Essentials
As I’m sure everyone is well aware, the new CPD requirements as regulated by the Law Society of Upper Canada have us all tuned in to the programs being offered and the hours accredited to each. While I blogged yesterday on a past CLE opportunity, I am happy to say that the future opportunities are equally as varied and interesting.
Among the CLE available in the Estate field which will certainly prove worthwhile, ‘Beyond Will and Estate Planning Essentials’, presented by the Ontario Bar Association, is taking place this afternoon. The program is accredited by the Law Society for 2.5 substantive hours and 1.5 professionalism hours of the required CPD for 2011. Presentations will be made on the following topics;
- Assessing Capacity and Vulnerability;
- Mutual Wills and More;
- Designation and Declarations – Landmarks and Landmines;
- Registered Disability Savings Plans and Related Planning;
- Business Succession Planning;
- A Review of Ethics and Defensive Practice Tools In an Estate Planning Context;
- 5 Success Strategies for your Estate Planning Practice; and
- Landmines for Lawyers: Exercising judgment in the fact of bad information or a lack of time.
The presentations will undoubtedly be insightful and provide guidance for all Estate practitioners. I’m certain that attendance will be worthwhile and although all CPD programs are in high demand, there may still be some space available. I hope to see you there.
