It is not uncommon for will makers to want to lock trust property away from some beneficiaries until they are older and (hopefully) more sensible. However, will drafters need to be careful to avoid the application of the rule in Saunders v Vautier, which could see the trust being busted early. This seminar will take a practical look at the rule as it applies to wills, making reference to recent case law. It will also touch on the potentially significant problems that neglecting to specify a vesting age can cause and will canvass solutions.
This webinar will canvass a range of conflict of interest issues facing government lawyers in legal practice, including obligations under the Professional Conduct Rules, the Legal Services Directions and public sector codes of conduct as they apply to public sector lawyers.
