The symposium will examine law reform in trusts and estates that has occurred over the past 50 years, with particular focus on the first great success, The Uniform Probate Code. Additionally, it will seek to identify and analyze topics that should constitute an agenda for further reform. The Legal Education Committee hopes to group together presentation with a similar theme and to permit a commentator to respond to the proposals.
If you would like to be considered to be a symposium presenter, please submit an abstract of your paper to Anne-Marie Rhodes by February 1, 2011. The Committee will notify individuals chosen to participate in the symposium by email no later than March 1, 2011. If you are chosen to present a paper, you will be asked to submit a draft by September 15, 2011. You will also be asked to agree to publish your final paper in a special symposium edition of the University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform.
All symposium speakers will be reimbursed for their travel expenses (airfare and the cost of ground transportation and hotel) courtesy of an ACTEC Foundation grant.
