This program will discuss a number of issues affecting a construction or reformation. You will learn about:

  • The construction of wills and trusts;
  • Reliance upon extrinsic evidence in construing a will or trust instrument
  • Practical considerations for seeking a construction of a will or trust instrument
  • The Canons of construction and statutes affecting construction issues; and
  • The reformation of wills and trusts.
