On February 11, Professor Eloisa C. Rodriguez-Dod spoke at the Third Annual Elder Law Symposium which was held at St. Thomas University School of Law. The Symposium entitled, “On Rocky Terrain: Managing Curious Situations as an Elder Law Attorney,” encompassed various practical subjects in elder law. Professor Rodriguez-Dod and Professor Donna Litman of Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center presented, “Repairing Broken Trusts and Drafting Trusts That Don’t Break” which dealt with irrevocable trusts that may cease to work properly or efficiently when beneficiaries’ needs or circumstances change. Their presentation reviewed the variety of legal processes available, under common law and the Florida Trust Code, to modify or terminate such trusts.
The event was organized by the University Elder Law Society and the Elder Law Section of the Florida Bar.
