Course Description:  The landmark Supreme Court case, Obergefell v. Hodges, will dramatically impact several areas of the law. During this program, our panel of experts will use an engaging case-history approach to teach attendees how to identify potential problems. Topics of discussion will include:

  • What common and overlapping issues occur in estate planning and administration, family law, and employee benefits contexts?
  • How should practitioners advise employers regarding their benefits?
  • What is the best advice for same-sex couples in estate and family law matters?
  • Have there been developments in case law since Obergefell was decided?
