The Uniform Probate Code: Remaking of American Succession Law
October 21, 2011
The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel’s Legal Education Committee is organizing the fourth in a series of academic symposia financially supported by the ACTEC Foundation. The next symposium, The Uniform Probate Code: Remaking of American Succession Law, will be held at the University of Michigan Law School on Friday, October 21, 2011.
The symposium will examine law reform in trusts and estates that has occurred over the past 50 years, with particular focus on the first great success, The Uniform Probate Code. Additionally, it will seek to identify and analyze topics that should constitute an agenda for further reform. The Legal Education Committee hopes to group together presentation with a similar theme and to permit a commentator to respond to the proposals.
If you would like to be considered to be a symposium presenter, please submit an abstract of your paper to Anne-Marie Rhodes by email (her address is firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1, 2011. The Committee will notify individuals chosen to participate in the symposium by email no later than March 1, 2011. If you are chosen to present a paper, you will be asked to submit a draft by September 15, 2011. You will also be asked to agree to publish your final paper in a special symposium edition of the University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform.
All symposium speakers will be reimbursed for their travel expenses (airfare and the cost of ground transportation and hotel) courtesy of an ACTEC Foundation grant. Speakers will also be invited to a Speakers’ Dinner on Thursday night, and breakfast and lunch will be provided to both speakers and attendees on Friday.
