Trust & Estate Section

Addresses the interests and problems of both specialists and general practitioners in the area of wills, trusts, guardianships, conservatorships, and estates. Members can always find a place on one of the section's many active committees, including a speakers bureau, publication of a quarterly newsletter for members, preparation of forms for the Orange Book (wills and trusts), Estate and Trust Forum column in The Colorado Lawyer, technology, judicial liaison, and community outreach. Standing committees on statutory revisions and probate rules and forms work to improve the laws, forms and rules that are applicable in the field. Members of the section work closely with the CBA's Elder Law Forum Committee in areas of mutual concern and also hold topical luncheons with the Tax, Real Estate, Business and other sections. The section has prepared and made available to its members a series of pamphlets explaining fiduciary arrangements and responsibilities.
