The University of Miami School of Law’s Heckerling Institute will host the 43rd Annual Estate Planning Conference from January 12 –16, 2009 at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort & Convention Center.
The Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning is the nation’s leading conference for estate planning professionals. As the largest gathering of its kind in the country, the conference is designed to meet the educational needs of sophisticated attorneys, trust officers, accountants, insurance advisors, and wealth management professionals.
This year, the Institute offers a new series of programs focusing on the estate planning and administration issues associated with retirement plan benefits. The comprehensive series will provide registrants with a thorough understanding of the planning techniques involved in this growing practice area. This year’s Institute will also address the planning issues and opportunities presented by recent economic developments, changing demographics and the prospect for wealth transfer tax legislation in 2009. Conference sessions such as “Planning for the Unknown for 2010 and Beyond” and “Estate Planning for the Next Generation of Clients” reflect these timely concerns.
The Institute offers a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with leading estate planning professionals from around the country. The conference also offers the opportunity to review the latest in technology, products and services displayed by nearly 150 vendors in an exhibit hall dedicated entirely to the estate planning industry.
