Countdown to MUPC: Register for the "MUPC Demystified" CLE series

After nearly two decades of debate, the Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code ("MUPC") was signed into law on Jan. 15, 2009 and will take effect on Jan. 2, 2012.

MUPC substantially impacts the practice of estate administration, increasing uniformity with other states, adding protections for those under guardianship and the beneficiaries of trusts, easing the administration of probate matters for judges and court personnel and reducing delays for citizens.

The MBA is committed to helping you be prepared for this momentous change in how probate law is practiced in the state of Massachusetts. Register for our dynamic five-part education series, which is designed to provide probate practitioners (as well as those who aspire to be) with an in-depth knowledge of the MUPC, exactly how it works and instruction on the new probate forms that will be issued by the court.

Click here to register for all five programs at a discounted price.

Unable to come to Boston? Through MBA On Demand, these programs will be available as real-time Webcasts. You have the choice to attend "virtually" from your home or office computer. Webcast space is limited, so registrants will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

All MUPC seminars are available for registrants to watch via MBA On Demand after the live program has taken place.
