Description: The Tax & Estate Planning Society at New York Law School will host a daylong program on an emerging issue for New York lawyers—representing same-sex couples in the context of New York’s recognition of out-of-state same sex marriages. Panels will include issues that New York lawyers now need to understand when advising non-traditional couples about elder law; parental rights; estate, financial, and insurance planning; and marriage, cohabitation, and divorce.
Time: 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Location: Room A300, New York Law School, 47 Worth Street (between Church and West Broadway), New York, NY 10013.
Price: Free admission for matriculating students. Registration required for transitional and non-transitional CLE credit. $75 cost for all attorneys. Members of the media may attend for free, please e-mail LaToya Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org for registration.
