There will be a total of 10 courses offered during the week, with two sessions presented each day from 9 to 11 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Each course will last two hours, including a 90-minute presentation and 30 minutes for Q&A. Join us for updates about probate practice, procedures and forms, new regulations and important court decisions.
