Why Attend?

This is a quick overview of trusts without getting into specifics of each trust. Learn which trusts will:

  • Protect a client’s assets

Also learn other purposes behind the use of trusts.


Trusts and estates lawyers need to learn a whole set of acronyms for the various types of trusts available to their clients. Become familiar with the terms and general concepts as your first foray into the estate planning world.

Everyone should have a will, sure. What other estate planning tools are available to either protect assets or assure assets are distributed according to your clients’ wishes?

More and more clients are exploring the use of trusts in their estate planning. This seminar will give the practitioner an overview of various types of trusts to consider when assisting a client with specific estate planning needs. Learn which trusts will serve your client’s goals from tax planning, to protecting a disabled beneficiary, to making charitable bequests. This is a basic- level seminar.
