Pre-ordered ebooks,Estate planning,Seventh Annual Melbourne Wills and Estates Conference
20 & 21 February 2020

Our annual wills and estates conference (held in August on the Gold Coast every year) draws succession lawyers from across the country. It is one of our most popular conferences and that is why we are repeating this event in Melbourne 2020 for all those who couldn’t get to the Gold Coast.

The challenges for wills and estate practitioners continue to grow, with the continued rise of informal wills, family provision claims and contentious probate. This year’s conference seeks to unravel the complexities, from challenging the will for lack of knowledge and approval, dodging the hazards of enduring powers of attorney and managing trustees or executors who behave badly.
