Lawctopus will be conducting a free webinar on ‘Wills and Will Drafting’ with Mr. Satyajeet Desai, Senior Advocate, Gujarat High Court and Revising Author of Mulla on Hindu Law.
A will is a legal document that sets forth your wishes regarding the distribution of your property and the care of any minor children. If you die without a will, those wishes may not be followed. Further, your heirs may be forced to spend additional time, money, and emotional energy to settle your affairs after you’re gone.- Investopedia.
In the times of Corona Virus, it has become critical to make a will – this session aims to encourage law students and young lawyers to promote will making amongst their network and at the same time learn valuable practical skill in making a will.
