A will is commonly regarded as being something that is ‘relatively easy’ to prepare.

However, with one in four estates now being contested this virtual classroom seminar will provide practical guidance on drafting techniques to avoid contested issues once the testator has passed away.

It will also cover the new legislation announced during COVID-19 and how to protect your firm following the changes.

  • Recent case law and simple mistakes in wills
  • Section 33 and unintended consequences
