The Wills, Estates and Succession Act (WESA) came into force in early 2014. WESA was viewed as a transformative piece of legislation that would significantly reform the law of succession, estate planning and estate administration. Nearly five years in, has this really been the case?

This Forum brings together leading practitioners to examine and discuss the impact WESA has had, looking at everything from procedural changes to unexpected consequences, and what the courts have had to say to date. You will leave with a better understanding of current practice under WESA, how the rules and procedures have really affected estate planning and administration and how best to work within the WESA framework going forward.
