Advanced Estates and Trusts

This course will be a continuation of the basic trusts and estates course. Among the subjects to be covered are discretionary trusts, powers of appointment, future interests, the rule against perpetuities, the duties of trustees, the powers of trustees, and the liability of trustees. Attention will be given to the drafting of wills and trusts as well as tax and nontax planning with trusts.
