Drafting Your Estate Plan

Lecture no. 11 from the course: Getting Your Legal House in Order

Drafting Your Estate Plan

Taught by Professor Sally Hurme | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

A will is a central document in your estate plan, a way to distribute property that is not already designated by some other way. Reflect on what a will does, why you might or might not need one, and what happens to your property if you die without one. Also, begin thinking about what you should include in a will.
