ABA's Real Property, Trust & Estate Law Section Offers Video Resources
Based in Oak Park, Illinois, James R. Carey has served as an attorney with Levin Schreder & Carey, LTD for more than 17 years, where he works on estate, trust, and guardianship issues, among others. Engaged with his field, attorney James R. Carey is the chair of the Litigation, Ethics and Malpractice Group within the American Bar Association’s Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law.
The ABA’s Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law offers a Lawyer’s Tool Box that is designed to serve as an all-in-one primer for building estate plans from start to finish, as well as a series on the basics of real property law. The first series of three videos focuses on the fundamentals of drafting wills and trusts, making a plan for how to distribute property as part of end-of-life decision-making, and ethical and fiduciary responsibilities of estate planners.
The second-series of three videos focuses on the laws guiding disputes between landlords and tenants, best practices for negotiating real estate purchase agreements, and best practices for negotiating commercial lease contracts. All of these videos have been created with law students and recent graduates stepping into practice for the first time who are interested in including estate and real property law within the scope of their practices.
