Of the LawSkills webinar - Wills Made following 2nd Marriages the Wealth Team at Boyes Turner say ‘Yes clear and concise, we all thought it was very informative. We like their webinars’! ‘I thought it was excellent. It covered my queries generally and raised things I need to probably be more aware of – potential conflict between a couple in their second marriage where both have children’.
The lecture was well received by all who attended, there was so much to take in, but Gill, as always, presented it in a way which makes it easier to grasp. Her notes are also most comprehensive and helpful.
I approached LawSkills looking for some one-to-one coaching on trust law following a sabbatical from UK private practice. We arranged a Skype appointment where Gill explained the technical aspects of trust law and practice in a straight-forward and approachable style. I would recommend LawSkills to any private client lawyer who is looking for one-to-one coaching or training as it helped me really get to grips with trusts providing me with more confidence to handle clients' questions.
Your course has really assisted my general understanding of trust’s and tax and provided me with a solid foundation to build upon. The notes you prepared have provided an excellent source of reference and your diagrams aided my understanding of a difficult subject to get my head around. The ability to ask questions as they came up really help me learn as well.
The well structured course notes, using a chronological timeline which brings in the relevant law and procedure at the appropriate time. The notes should be a valuable ongoing companion and reference point too. I felt the course was excellent.
As to quality versus quantity of CPD this is a bugbear since it becomes difficult for the seasoned practitioner to find enticing courses to go to. Lawskills' ones are always terrific though!!!
