Jill Lebowitz, a member of the Bridgewater-based law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., will speak at the NJICLE Estate Planning Summer Institute on Thursday, July 23, and Friday, July 24, at the New Jersey Law Center. The NJICLE is presenting the seminar in cooperation with the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Real Property, Trust & Estate Law Section. Lebowitz will present on the Generation-Skipping Transfer Tax on July 24.
The Estate Planning Summer Institute, which has been approved for 6.7 NJ CLE credits, will present topics relevant even for those not exposed to estate planning in their practice. In-depth sessions have been designed to evaluate financial issues and planning techniques so that attendees can better understand and evaluate these proposals in not only determining the tax and financial advantages they offer, but also their limitations. In addition, the institute will provide attendees with a comprehensive review of the issues not found in most other estate planning CLE programs. As part of the objective of refreshing areas that can expand one’s practice, sessions will review the generation-skipping transfer tax, elder care, trusts, portability and counsel fees. To register, please visit the NJICLE website or call 732-214-8500.
