Contentious probate litigation is a fast-growing area of law.

The rapid growth is fuelled in part by the explosion in property prices and by people marrying on multiple occasions, causing tricky family dynamics.

As a result, contentious private client departments are rapidly expanding, and a growing number of existing practitioners are beginning to practice in this area.

There are a number of ways to challenge the provision made under a will or an intestacy after death.

This new introductory level virtual classroom seminar will cover the most common types of claims, using a practical approach based on real-life cases, in order to give you the foundations to successfully work in this area.
