2021 – 55th Annual Heckerling – Summaries

The Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning has long been recognized as the nation’s premier conference for estate planning professionals, offering unparalleled educational and professional development opportunities for all members of the estate planning team. Due to COVID, the 55th Institute was delivered virtually rather than in person this year.
