Estates & Trusts Spring Events

Hull & Hull LLP Estate & Trust Tags: , , , , , , , 0 Comments

Spring is a time for conferences and events.  Here are a few upcoming Estates and Trusts programs you might be interested in.

The Ontario Bar Association is having its annual Dinner with the Honourable Estates List Judges on Tuesday, April 27th at 6:00 p.m. at the OBA Conference Centre in Toronto. It is a great opportunity for estates practitioners to mingle with their own as well as with the Honourable Justices Brown, Conway and Strathy. It has been over a year since the Toronto Estates List Practice Direction so come on out and give some feedback! Last year’s dinner was fun and informative so I expect more of the same this year.

The OBA is also holding an event on Thursday, May 20th from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. entitled "Solicitors as Attorneys, Trustees and Estate Trustees – What You Need to Know". If you are a lawyer who has taken on any of these roles, or intend to, this program is for you. "Learn how to get paid, how to avoid being sued, and how to manage disputes with family members or co-trustee". That pretty much says it all.

Osgoode’s 7th Annual Intensive Wills & Estates Workshop, with Hull & Hull LLP’s own Jordan Atin as Workshop Leader, takes place over three Thursday evenings, June 10, 17 & 24, and runs from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Osgoode Professional Development Centre, Toronto. Jordan has certainly enlightened me on many occasions so I’m sure he can do the same for you.  For a preview, check out this link to see Jordan on Canada AM.

That should be enough ongoing learning to keep you busy until summer vacation…enjoy!
