Probate Section members and Young Lawyers Division members are invited to attend:

“Expert Testimony in Will Contests”
Wednesday, Jan. 24, 5 p.m.         
MBA, 20 West St., Boston

When is it necessary and/or useful to provide expert witnesses in a will contest? The Hon. Robert W. Langlois, first justice, Middlesex Probate & Family Court, and another judge (TBA) will provide feedback to our group regarding this issue. Please come with your “war stories”  -- when expert testimony was helpful and when it was not -- and join us for a roundtable discussion.

Please [e-mail jstevens] to R.S.V.P. for these meetings, as space is limited.
