Date: 10th November 2009

Time: Not specified

Venue: Not available

Event Details

What is this event about?
The Commission has adopted on 14 October 2009 the long awaited proposal on succession and wills. This EU initiative tends to simplify successions with cross border elements and to strengthen legal certainty in this area of large impact for every citizen. The proposed instrument will lead to uniform rules on the determination of competent authorities and the applicable law. As the proposal links both, competence and applicable law, primarily to the habitual residence of the decedent, it will overturn the private international law foundations of many European Countries.
This event will enable the participants to obtain first responses of leading experts in the law of succession regarding the pros and cons of the suggested instrument.

2 CPD hours may be claimed by both solicitors and barristers through attendance at this event.
