Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
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 and charitable giving. The course will also provide an introduction to estate and trust litigation, as well as limited introduction to the field of elder law. The emphasis will be on practical, real-life situations and positive steps available to the lawyer to deal with various situations involving estate and business succession planning. Suggested prerequisites or co-requisites for the course include Income Tax and Wills and Trusts. Each student will be expected to have a working knowledge of Wills and Trusts prior to taking the course, but by no means any expertise. The course includes basic coverage of the federal estate and gift tax and how it affects estate planning options. Although this is a skills class, there is an exam on the last day of class.
Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement.
