The Trust & Estates Institute is a space for the leading legal minds involved with trust and estates law, as it pertains to the LGBTQ+ community, to share ideas and network. The Institute is designed to offer experienced trust and estates practitioners the opportunity to discuss issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community and discuss legal trends and strategies for now and in the near future. Modeled after the Family Law Institute, the Trust & Estates Institute offers high-level group discourse rather than a traditional CLE lecture format, as well as an opportunity for practitioners to collaborate with a national network of experienced practitioners. To create an environment that encourages the free flow of information, registration is limited. The meeting will be closed and the proceedings will not be recorded. The Trust & Estates Institute is not open to law students.
The LGBT Bar is no longer requiring Institute registration forms for interested attendees. You will be able to sign up for this Institute on the 2021 Lavender Law® advance registration form. If you have already registered for Lavender Law® but did not indicate on your registration that you will attend the Institute, please fill out this Google Form.
Please check back soon for the 2021 schedule. The Institute’s 2020 schedule is available below for reference.
