Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning 2019 (3L)
Due: Monday, November 5, 2018, 5:00pm | 3L Students: Are you thinking about practicing in the field of Wills and Trusts? Are you interested in attending THE premier estate planning conference, the 53rd Annual Heckerling Institute, January 14-18, 2019 at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort in Orlando, Florida? Registration is free for law students. We have obtained funding to pay the airfare, hotel & meals for a Pepperdine 3L to attend. This is a great opportunity for you to meet over 3,000 highly experienced estate planners from all over the country. It would require you to miss a week of classes in January. (I'm sure you'll live).
If you are interested in this opportunity, please:
1. Go to the University of Miami Law School's website for the Heckerling Institute
to see more specifically what is offered at the conference, at http://www.law.miami.edu/heckerling.
2. To apply for a scholarship to pay your expenses, write a short memo (1-3 pages) to Professor Knaplund indicating why YOU should be the one to attend. For example, with 3,000 attorneys there, what 2 or 3 things would you do before the conference, and once at the conference, to meet attorneys where you are interested in working?
3. Deadline to email your memo to Professor Knaplund: Monday, November 5, 2018 at 5 PM. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Since this is an annual event, 3Ls will receive preference over 2Ls.
4. Questions? Please contact Professor Knaplund.
