Calling all estate planners! Join us in New York for the 2015 Skills Training for Estate Planners program.
The annual Skills Training for Estate Planners CLE program is for attorneys who practice, or plan to practice, estate planning law. This popular program has two courses of study:

The Fundamentals course is perfect for young or transitioning lawyers new to the practice and provides them with a strong educational experience focused on the “how to” of estate planning.

The Advanced Topics course focuses on current areas of interest and importance to lawyers experienced in estate planning and is an excellent opportunity to further expand their knowledge and skills.

This institute-type program provides a comprehensive CLE experience with coordinated sessions that build upon one another. It’s held annually at New York Law School in the Tribeca neighborhood of downtown Manhattan. Some of the benefits of this unique program include:
   -- An outstanding expert faculty who share their insights and strategies on the most pressing issues estate planners currently face
   -- An intensive classroom environment that encourages interaction and integrates substance with practical skills instruction
   -- Detailed course materials that serve as a valuable reference when you return to your office
   -- The opportunity to network with faculty and other participants from across the country at two receptions, program breakfasts and lunches, as well as informally in the evenings
   -- Between 24-54 hours of CLE credit (including 1 hour of ethics credit), depending on your state and the course chosen (see website for details)
