Navigating Ethical Issues in the Estate Planning Process
1.5 Ethics CLE Credits
Overview: Meeting and representing clients to discuss estate planning and other end-of-life legal issues can involve a number of ethical considerations. When the estate planning process begins with a call from a potential client’s spouse, partner, family member, or close friend, the attorney must first determine who the client is. Other crucial issues include client confidentiality, conflicts of interest, the client’s mental capacity, undue influence, and the participation of family members or caregivers in the estate planning process. This training will offer legal and practical guidance for attorneys dealing with these ethical issues.
