The 63rd Annual Estate Planning Short Course offers more than 18 hours of advanced instruction on Illinois estate planning law through carefully crafted sessions led by experienced estate planning attorneys.
Learn important takeaways for both the drafters and the fiduciaries. For the Drafters - Review common trust provisions impacted by the Illinois Trust Code and trust drafting tips. For the Fiduciaries - Understand what steps fiduciaries (individuals or corporations) should be taking prior to and after the effective date of the Illinois Trust Code as well as the impact of the Code on how fiduciaries administer trusts.
Learn which beneficiaries are entitled to receive accountings and copies of the trust instrument under the Illinois Trust Code. Get details about which trusts the rules apply to, whether the grantor can change these rights in the trust instrument, and what other information the trustee is required to provide to beneficiaries.
One of the most consequential decisions (and often the last one) in estate planning is trustee selection. The trustee who seems like the most ideal choice at first glance may not necessarily have the diversity of subject matter expertise and oversight to allow for continuous, efficient, and robust administration. Learn about important considerations for trustee selection, the pros and cons of including a professional fiduciary in your estate plan, and how to counsel clients to make informed choices when crafting an estate plan and choosing a trustee.
