Mediating Trust & Estate Disputes

2 Unit(s)

Trust and estate practice is filled with actual and potential conflicts among close and distant family members and other interested persons. Effectively identifying and addressing these unique types and causes of conflicts are essential to a successful trust and estate practice. This course will enable the practitioner to sharpen his/her existing skills in dealing with these conflicts and disputes and equip the practitioner with new tools and methods for creative non-adversarial resolution. The students will learn by using real case scenarios in an interactive classroom setting that includes dispute resolution role-play. (Offered through the LLM in Taxation Program. JD students seeking to enroll must obtain the approval of the program director. This course meets the Experiential Learning requirement for JD students.)
