All delegates will receive recordings of all of the sessions after the event.

  • Weighing Up the Evidence in Capacity Challenges - A challenge to testamentary capacity often places the professionalism of the drafting practitioner in the spotlight, and can be reputationally damaging. This session discusses how the weight of evidence is changing from medical expertise to more general lay observations, and what practitioners can do to protect themselves from challenges.

  • The Age of Entitlement: Eligibility for Family Provision Claims - Not everyone who feels hard done by in relation to the distribution of the estate is able to make a claim for a slice of the pie. This session looks at eligibility for making a claim against an estate, and what evidence is required to satisfy the court.

  • Equitable Remedies and Estate Litigation - Equitable remedies in estate litigation may often be a more appropriate claim or be pleaded in conjunction with other claims as alternate relief.  This session considers when these remedies may be relevant, what remedies are available and when they should be claimed.
