Course Contentious Probate: Current Issues and Problem Areas for Practitioners (5 hours)


Contentious probate is an expanding area of practice. This course equips practitioners to advise personal representatives, beneficiaries and potential claimants with confidence and is equally suitable for contentious and non-contentious probate practitioners and civil litigators who seek a greater understanding of the issues involved. It will include a review of developments and relevant case law over the last 5 years, a consideration of preparation of cases, and practical obstacles and how to overcome them.

The course will cover:

  • The probate jurisdiction of the court
  • Issues as to formal validity of wills: testamentary intention and due execution
  • Probate claims based upon testamentary incapacity, want of knowledge and approval, undue influence and forgery
  • Interest claims
  • Evidence
  • Practice and procedure in probate claims
  • Costs in contentious probate claims

Great presentation, informative but not overfacing for a relative newcomer to this area.
