  • Examination of changes in marriage and family structures, changes in family governance, the increasing cultural diversity of today’s families, artificial reproductive practices, and assumptions about life expectancy and mortality;
  • Exploration of approaches to estate planning and wealth allocation, modifications of trust design, and issues in the allocation of fiduciary responsibility which are better aligned with the needs of modern families;
  • Exploration of issues associated with increased longevity; and
  • Examination of the ways in which attorneys and fiduciaries can assist families in building more effective protocols for family collaboration and decision making
