A May 8 Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section seminar to encourage minority and diverse lawyers to include estate planning in their practices drew more than 100 participants.

The free, all-day, and online seminar followed up on a similar in-person event held in January 2020 (and an earlier one in 2008) and was sponsored by the section’s Membership and Inclusion Committee and supported by Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law, Florida International College of Law, the Elder Law Section, and a variety of voluntary bar associations.

“It was great, it was thorough, it laid out steps in a cohesive, understandable way,” said Ashley Gantt, president of the T.J. Reddick Bar Association and who attended the seminar. “I am actually in the process of opening my own firm; it was very on time.”
