The purpose of this study group is to help attorneys keep up with changes in the law, understand and utilize the POMs, and stay up-to-date with the latest information when counseling their clients. This group is not specific to pooled trusts but is intended to provide participants with access to top notch education to assist them in their practices on a broad spectrum of subjects.
Study group meetings are held online utilizing live stream Vimeo. They are usually held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 11:30am –1:00pm. MCLE credit is also available at no charge for California attorneys and fiduciaries. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get on our mailing list or to request MCLE credit. All presentations are recorded. Links are provided in the Recordings section below.
