Provides funding for fellowships for second-year students attending a law school in New York State to work in a trusts and estates position in the public sector.
The fund has been named after the Trusts and Estates Law Section of the New York State Bar Association and was established with a gift from the Section in 2010. The Fellowship Program provides students with an opportunity to experience trusts and estates law practice. The ultimate goal of the Fellowship is to create a network and forge relationships among trusts and estates law attorneys throughout the State of New York.
The Trusts and Estates Law Section is actively involved in all aspects of estate practice, by analyzing topical issues, drafting new legislation and providing relevant continuing legal education to practitioners.
