Request for Proposals: ACTEC Foundation 2019-20 Academic Symposium:
The Legal Education Committee of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) requests proposals for a $20,000 grant to host an academic symposium on trust and estate law during the 2019-2020 academic year. ...
The RFP should provide the following information. A. Theme. The theme of the symposium should be related to trust and estate law, defined to include any topic related to the gratuitous transfer of property (e.g., probate law, trust law, elder law, transfer tax law). A broad theme permits a wide range of papers and is more likely to be successful. Past themes have included Trust Law in the 21st Century (Cardozo 2005); Inheritance Law in the 21st Century (UCLA 2008); Philanthropy Law in the 21st Century (Chicago-Kent 2009); The Uniform Probate Code: Remaking of American Succession Law (Michigan 2011); The Role of Federal Law in Private Wealth Transfer (Vanderbilt 2014); and The Centennial of the Estate Tax: Perspectives and Recommendations (Boston College 2015). The theme of the most recent symposium, which took place at the University of Iowa College of Law in September 2017, was Wealth Transfer Law in Comparative and International Perspective (articles will be published in the Iowa Law Review). ...
RFPs are due by Monday, May 7, 2018, and will be considered by the Symposium Subcommittee of the ACTEC Legal Education Committee at ACTEC’s Summer Meeting in Chicago, Illinois, in June 2018.
