Delivered by Graham Colley, a solicitor specialising in all aspects of wills, probate, and powers of attorney, this session will provide an overview. Since the pandemic we have noticed greater demand for free advice on these issues and greater interest from clinics in advising in these areas, although not traditionally a big area of pro bono practice.
This session is for clinics interested in developing services in this area, and advisers who may find themselves having to answer basic inquiries on these topics. The session will cover:
- Wills – the basics;
- Executors and grant of probate;
- Intestacy rules – an introduction;
- Powers of attorney.
