Trusts and Estates Law

Postby thankstazotea » Wed Apr 07, 2010 10:27 am

What have people heard about Trusts and Estates law? Is it really as boring as people make it out to be? Also is it considered pretty profitable? People say it's a good career for women who want to have a family because it's rather flexible. Thoughts?

Although I am an 0L, I took an entire semester's class about Wills, Trusts, & Estates in UG. I found it to be pretty interesting. I'm interested in maybe one day practicing this type of law.

From what I can tell based on T&E lawyers I know personally, the profitability of this practice area depends very heavily on having lots of friends who have rich parents. If you have that, then they'll recommend you to your parents, as long as they think you're smart. If you don't have that yet, learn the art of golf-and-schmooze.

1L from a finance background here. Property Law is pretty difficult. Many archaic readings and it's difficult to trudge through the material. I suppose once you master the subjects perhaps it will be rewarding...
