If you are involved in the creation and administration of trusts, the STEP Advanced Certificate in Trust Disputes equips you with the expertise needed to anticipate, and consequently avoid, the common pitfalls that can lead to trust litigation.
As the first qualification to look at this area from a conscientious angle, this course gives you an extensive overview of various permutations involved in trust disputes. Designed for delegates based anywhere in the world, this course is delivered entirely through our online learning platform, which provides you with access to a range of comprehensive resources.
Although the course material focuses on English law and practice, it draws on case law from other leading trust jurisdictions and delegates can use the law of the jurisdiction they reside and work in for their assignment.
This course is aimed at senior trust professionals, trust officers and those involved in pension trusts. This course is also suitable for directors, CRM’s, private client lawyers, contentious lawyers who act for trustees or beneficiaries or lawyers who advise trustees’ professional indemnity insurers. This course enhances your understanding of how disputes occur and how they can be avoided.
The Advanced Certificate takes four months to complete and the final assessment consists of a 3,500 - 4,000 word assignment based on a case study. We recommend that you spend four to six hours per week on personal study for the duration of the course in preparation for the assignment.
After you have successfully completed the course, you will gain 30 Diploma Level credits towards STEP membership.
