Estate Planning: MCLE BasicsPlus!® gives practitioners a solid foundation in the skillset and tools necessary to establish a successful estate planning practice. The program focuses on practical application of the law and skills involved in planning an estate of less than $2,000,000, although it also introduces concerns that arise in larger estates. You learn to draft estate planning instruments while considering the impact of both Massachusetts and federal estate taxes and the ever-changing Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code. You get an in-depth look at how to prepare wills, trusts, health care proxies, and powers of attorney, as well as advice on everything from handling the first client meeting to post-mortem planning. You leave this program with a solid grounding in estate planning and the ability to jump-start your practice.
MCLE webcasts are delivered completely online, underscoring their convenience and appeal. There are no published print materials. All written materials are available electronically only. They are posted 24 hours prior to the program and can be accessed, downloaded, or printed from your computer.
