B740 Estate Planning

Description This course will explore the various estate planning options available to individuals to enable them to achieve their objectives with respect to the transition of wealth, including closely-held business holdings. The emphasis will be on practical, real-life situations and positive steps available to the lawyer to deal with those situations. Each student will be expected to have a working knowledge of Gift and Estate Tax as well as Wills and Trusts prior to taking the course but by no means any expertise. Suggested prerequisites or co-requisites for the course include Income Tax, Gift and Estate Tax, and Wills and Trusts; however, total familiarity with the estate and gift tax consequences of estate planning options will not be expected until the end of the semester.

Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement.
