Note from Probate Law Leadership
Dear colleagues and fellow section members:
This is a very exciting time for probate practitioners in
Massachusetts. The practice of probate law in Massachusetts is
about to undergo a dramatic change in both procedure and substance.
Members of the Probate Law Section are working tirelessly with
legislators, members of the bar and the judiciary, and the banking
industry to promote the passage of the Massachusetts Uniform Trust
Code and the Technical Corrections Bill for the Massachusetts
Uniform Probate Code.
As you all know, all articles of the Massachusetts Uniform Probate
Code will become effective January 2, 2012. The Probate Law Section
is committed to providing practical and informative programs to
assist our members with the transition to the Uniform Probate Code
and the Uniform Trust Code. As part of that effort, on January 5,
2012, our section is sponsoring a conference
dedicated to the Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code at Lombardo's
in Randolph. The all-day conference will provide a comprehensive
overview of the code presented by members of both the bar and the
here for more details and to register.
We are also collaborating with the Boston Bar Association and
members of the judiciary to create an MUPC Resource Desk that will
be staffed with volunteers at Probate Courts throughout the
