Information

Why Attend?

Competence in this area requires you to be up-to-date on basic estate planning documents, wills, trusts, and powers of attorney.

  • Learn about the history and evolution of the Act
  • Understand the role of the custodian and the default rules under the Act
  • Examine specific provisions that require explicit authority under documents
  • Review language that should be included in estate planning documents

In the age of Internet, digital assets have become more prevalent and, in some cases, valuable. Almost everyone has a digital asset (e.g., an email account, a Facebook account, or a Twitter account). Virginia has adopted the Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act (the “Act”) to modernize fiduciary law to work in conjunction with Virginia’s existing law on probate, guardianship and conservatorships, trusts, and powers of attorney. However, not all estate planning documents specifically address digital assets, which could have unintended consequences and restrict access by fiduciaries.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellation/transfer requests will be honored until 5:00 p.m. the day preceding the seminar. You will, however, be charged $40 if you cancel or transfer your registration to a different seminar after the link to the materials has been e-mailed by Virginia CLE.

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance. If you enter a seminar late or leave it early, or both, you must reflect those adjustments accurately in the credits you report on your credit reporting form. A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.
