You are invited to join us for the second session in our fall lunch and learn series.
As everyone learns in first year law school, a beneficiary has no enforceable right under the will of a living person. Until the testator dies, a beneficiary has nothing more than a spes successionis. It follows that beneficiaries can generally not litigate issues arising under the will of a living person. Nonetheless, a number of recent court decisions have shown an increasing willingness to entertain pre-death will litigation issues.
This presentation will examine recent developments in this area of case law, and attempt to clarify the circumstances in which it will be appropriate to litigate issues under the will of a living testator.
