Trusts and Estates Drafting

This course focuses on drafting documents used in estate planning and administration. Substantive law discussions are integrated into exercises in drafting documents commonly used by estate and trust practitioners. These documents include wills, trusts, petitions to the Surrogate's Court, and beneficiary designations for life insurance policies and retirement funds.

Important: A student may enroll in only one Advanced Legal Writing course each semester. Further, a student may not repeat any advanced Legal Writing course (all sections of Commercial Drafting and I.P. Drafting count as the same course). None of the drafting courses satisfies the writing requirement.

Credits: 3
