Thirteenth annual Probate Law Institute agenda set
~ written by Bradley B. Wrightsel, Wrightsel & Wrightsel
The Thirteenth Annual Probate Law Institute (PLI) is scheduled for Tuesday, April 24 and promises to be an informative seminar for all estate planning and probate attorneys. The PLI runs from 8:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and is approved for 6.5 CLE credit hours. Additionally, Columbus Bar Services, a subsidiary of the Columbus Bar Association, will provide lunch. The institute is an excellent way to keep on top of recent changes in this area of practice.
As in past years, the PLI will kick off with Judge Lawrence A. Belskis presenting a legislative update. This year’s PLI also continues the tradition of inviting a probate judge from a surrounding county to speak. This year, Judge Charlotte Coleman Eufinger, the Union County Probate Judge, will speak concerning an update on relevant case law.
All of the speakers have a great deal of experience in covering their topics. William J. Browning of Browning & Meyer will present a Medicaid update; Jay E. Michael will cover contested fiduciary appointments and removal proceedings; and J. Bradley Britton of The Columbus Foundation will speak concerning recent developments in charitable giving. William A. Morse will cover the basics of the generation skipping tax, and Alan S. Acker will address emerging issues under the Uniform Principal and Income Act.
Additionally, there will be a technology demonstration by Acker during the lunch break, showing a web-based trust and will drafting system.
