Professor Mohamed Paleker convenes conference on succession and trusts

30 Sep 2012 - 13:00

A/Prof Mohamed Paleker has convened a conference examining contemporary issues in succession and trusts law. The conference, held at UCT in September 2012, was attended by academics, judges, legal practitioners as well as professionals from the financial planning sector.

Conference papers will be published in the 2014 edition of the UCT Law Faculty's peer-reviewed journal Acta Juridica: the volume will be edited by Profs Paleker (UCT) and MJ De Waal (Stellenbosch) and will be dedicated to the memory of the former Chief Justice of South Africa, MM Corbett. Justice Corbett, a UCT graduate, was widely acknowledged as a leading authority on the law of succession and trusts, penning many important judgments in these areas and authoring what is still the leading textbook on the law of succession in South Africa.
