PA UTA Learning Opportunities

The Pennsylvania Bar Institute has made available at a link found here the online purchase, for webcast viewing within three months after authorization, the September 27, 2006, presentation of the "Pennsylvania Uniform Trust Act" seminar.

This is the multi-media version of the
highly-successful, well-attended, four-hour, statewide educational program that was co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Bankers Association and the Pennsylvania Bar Association. That program was described here ("PA Bar Institute & PA Bankers Association Co-Sponsor PA UTA Course").

This is only one of many learning resources now being made available regarding the new Pennsylvania Uniform Trust Act, now in effect, which I described previously here and here.

Various estate planning councils in Pennsylvania are devoting a member meeting to a presentation regarding the PA UTA. Here are a few upcoming presentations:
  • Delaware County Estate Planning Council
    • Monday, November 13, 2006
    • Presentation by Karen A. Fahrner, Esq.
  • Pittsburgh Estate Planning Council
    • Wednesday, November 15, 2006
    • Presentation by William Campbell Ries, Esq.
  • Philadelphia Estate Planning Council
    • Tuesday, January 23, 2007
    • Presentation by Robert L. Freedman, Esq.
  • York County Estate Planning Council
    • Tuesday, January 30, 2007
    • Presentation by Neil E. Hendershot, Esq.
  • Montgomery County Estate Planning Council
    • Monday, February 26, 2007
    • Presentation by Edward M. Watters, III, Esq.
For details as to these presentations, click on the particular estate planning council's link, now found in the sidebar of this blog.

Also, the PA UTA will be the subject of one session by Ted Watters, Esq., a key member of the PA UTA Drafting Subcommittee, during PBI's
13th Annual Estate Law Institute to be held on November 15 & 16, 2006, in Philadelphia.

As of November 6, 2006, the PA UTA is in effect. One of these presentations would be a good introduction to the important provisions now contained in new Chapter 77 of the Pennsylvania Probate, Estates & Fiduciaries Code.
