The Estate Planning Committee works on practice issues, legislation and substantive planning relating to the topic of estate planning. Recent projects include proposed legislation to provide for incorporation by reference of the terms under a revocable trust; legislation on burial rights; preparation of brochures for the NYSBA on wills and trusts; research and writing of a comprehensive article on jurisdiction of trusts which included a comparative analysis of NYS; and work on amendments to the General Obligations Law relating to Powers of Attorney. Our discussions at committee meetings are lively and interesting, covering a variety of planning topics.
