Estate & Gift Taxation

Law 282






This course will cover the taxation of gratuitous transfers. The course will focus on the substantive law of taxation of gifts and estates and will also provide a basic introduction to estate planning for the beginner.

The Family Wealth Management course would make a nice capstone for this package of courses. The course is also of value to students interested in a career in taxation or family wealth management.

Mandatory: None
