Around 2800 deceased estates a year involve allegations that someone has been dropped from the final will because of lack of testamentary capacity or undue influence by the ultimate beneficiary. This month Proctor provides practical guidance for solicitors who may find themselves representing the aggrieved party in litigation or mediation. The September edition also includes tips on applying for payments under the recently amended Appeal Costs Fund Act 1973 and explains how amendments to the Legal Profession Act 2007 will impact directors of incorporated legal practices under administration. There’s an interesting discussion on the way artificial intelligence may influence court decisions and a look at changes included in the Court and Civil Legislation Amendment Act 2017 that provide clarity for trusts, stepchildren and de facto partners.
Proctor is now available to be read on your smart-phone or tablet, with iOS and Android apps now available for Queensland Law Society members. Android and Apple users can now download the app from their respective online stores below.
