I am heading out this morning for a high level estate planning seminar at McGeorge Law School. Some of the biggest estate planning lecturers in the country will be coming to Sacramento to educate us. We will be learning about asset protection, the latest tax laws, and more. All attorneys in California have requirements for continuing legal education. It is currently 25 hours every 3 years. However, to be a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate law I have to take hours that have been approved for a higher level. That is that the courses are not basic but rather at least intermediate or advanced. Shouldn’t your estate planning attorney be required to take a high number of intermediate and advanced estate planning courses every year!?
