We are pulling together THE ACADEMY’S GREATEST HITS—1993 through 2013. There are eight courses that we’ll be offering to non-members at no charge during our 20th year, (members feel free to sign up and review!).
Each week we’ll give you the summary of ONE course. You can begin the course any time you want. Once you register for the series of sessions, the courses will be delivered to you one at a time over an 8-week period.
Looking back over the past 20 years that the Academy has virtually invented the services, coaching, marketing, legal education and legal documents estate planning attorneys deserve to build their practices with has been fun and exciting. We’re honored to make these sessions available in an effort to celebrate our two decades of support with attorneys in every state!

During this Advanced Estate Planning session you will learn:
- How A/B trusts are still valuable for asset protection (notwithstanding the availability of portability because it is neither an uncompensated transfer (for Medicaid) nor a fraudulent transfer, whereas a disclaimer could be both and for state estate tax reasons)
- How State exemptions in bankruptcy should be taken advantage of and what they are (including a discussion of which states exempt IRAs)
- How to avoid liability and ethics issues when doing asset protection planning
- A briefer discussion about self-settled domestic asset protection trusts (primarily for members in DAPT jurisdictions)
- Other asset protection topics of interest to attorneys with a clientele of a more moderate wealth
