Jointly presented by Queensland Law Society and Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Queensland Branch, this one day event marks the 100 year anniversary of the introduction of family provision legislation in Queensland, under the Testator’s Family Maintenance Act of 1914.
Expert practitioners and members of the judiciary will present perspectives on aspects of this legislation, including testamentary dispositions and managing family provision applications in small estates. This legislation has had a significant impact on the ability of courts to intervene when eligible applicants have been left without adequate provision by a deceased person.
Sessions will have relevance for both experienced and generalist practitioners who practise in succession, family, and personal injuries law, and in general litigation.
The day will conclude with an opportunity to connect with colleagues and peers over refreshments.
