The Heckerling Graduate Program in Estate Planning enables attorneys to gain expertise in individual and estate planning — a specialization increasingly in demand due to the increasing complexity and uncertainty surrounding today's economic and legal environments, combined with changing population demographics.
Tina Portuondo is Director of the Heckerling Graduate Program in Estate Planning and Director of the Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning. She also became chair of the ABA's Section of Real Property, Trust, and Estate Law (RPTE) in 2012. Read article and watch video.
"You cannot compare the LL.M. in estate planning with an LL.M. in taxation. The LL.M. in estate planning will better prepare you to deal with the complicated issues that individual clients have when transferring their wealth to others".
