MBL Seminars: Construction & Rectification of Wills – Key Issues to Consider

March 7, 2024, 9:00 am to 11:00 am

Most private client lawyers think they can read a will but this is a technical and fast-moving area, where the devil can lie in the detail.

Add in six-month time limits and complicated costs issues, and a rectification or construction issue can easily catch out even an experienced practitioner.

 

Further info

This new virtual classroom seminar will set out the basic principles of constructing a will, before developing the procedure and case-law of construction and rectification claims, finishing with questions of costs, time limits, and practical tips.

It is suitable for contentious practitioners and any non-contentious practitioner whose practice involves the construction of wills.

The session will not consider questions of tax.

This live and interactive course will cover the following:

  • The core principles of rectification and construction of wills
  • How far can – and will – a court rewrite a will?
  • Key cases and common problems
  • Time limits and delay
  • Procedure and costs
  • Top tips
