Nick Piska Lecture: Wills, Trusts and Estates Meets Gender, Race and Class

October 12, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm

Nick Piska Lecture: Wills, Trusts and Estates Meets Gender, Race and Class
Nick Piska is a Chief Examinar-Stage 3 and Professor at Kent Law School

Overview
This one-day Symposium chaired by Professor Carla Spivack (Oklahoma City University School of Law), entitled Wills, Trusts and Estates Meets Gender, Race and Class, will explore the gender, race and class implications of succession law. A legal system’s choices about who is able to transfer wealth during life and at death, and the consequences of these choices, reveal a society’s core values, competing concerns and fundamental political commitments. The transmission of wealth from one generation to the next replicates or disrupts the very social structures that create, sustain and determine power, class, and social mobility. Scholars from around the world will discuss succession law and its implications in today’s society.

Format
The Symposium will be a public event and consist of four panel presentations and one keynote speaker. The Symposium will conclude around 5:00pm. The Law Review will host dinners for panelists and other invited guests on the evening of Thursday, October 11th and the evening of Friday, October 12th.
