Missed the sold-out seminar “Drafting and Practice Considerations under the Wills & Succession Act”? You are in luck! This package includes an audio recording of the full day session, as well as the accompanying course materials in electronic format. Learn about the practical impact of this new legislation on matrimonial property agreements, implications of the in terrorem rule, and tips for controlling the matrimonial property claim on death. The Wills & Succession Act introduces new claims and several new kinds of applications. Discover how these changes will affect your practice.

Note: There has been a great deal of discussion regarding the provisions with respect to matrimonial property. In a effort to provide the range of views on this topic we are including with these materials access to two additional papers. These bonus materials, which are from our May 2011 seminar on the Wills and Succession Act, deal specifically with “Matrimonial Property Division on Death” (Part 1 by Jodie Hierlmeier and Part 2 by Janice Henderson-Lypkie).

Please note, while these materials are current as of the date of the original seminar they relate to legislation not yet proclaimed and, as such, subject to change prior to the anticipated in force date. Other materials are in draft form and also subject to change prior to coming into force. Users are urged to watch for notice of any changes.
