2012/2013 ANNUAL REPORT:

This Section continues its work with the General Assembly in proposing, reviewing, and testifying on legislation that affects the practice of estates and trusts law in Maryland. Its Section Council has been working to codify Maryland trust law into a comprehensive trust act and to clarify the law concerning inheritance by posthumously conceived children. The Section also worked to expand the availability of modified administration and protect trust assets from claims of a grantor’s creditors in limited circumstances, and held periodic meetings with the Registers of Wills, Orphans’ Court judges, Comptroller’s Office, and Attorney General’s Office to review common concerns regarding legislative developments, estate and inheritance tax matters, guardianships, and estate and trust administration. It continued its educational programs, including its newsletter, the Advance Estate Planning Institute, the Advanced Tax Institute and numerous CLE and study group programs.
