Institute for Indian Estate Planning and Probate
at Seattle University School of Law
The Indian Land Tenure Foundation created The Institute for Indian Estate Planning and Probate in May of 2005. The Institute opened its doors at Seattle University School of Law on August 1, 2005, with a mission of providing training on the American Indian Probate Reform Act and estate planning services to Indian Country. The Institute currently oversees estate planning projects in eight states, including law school externship projects funded by the ILTF, and estate planning legal service projects in the Northwest , Midwest and Great Plains regions funded in part by grants from the Paul Allen Foundation and the Bush Foundation. The Institute is actively working to establish new projects as funding permits, engaging in fund-raising activities to support this work, and providing training at all levels on estate planning in Indian Country under the new Act.
The final rules and regulations implementing the American Indian Probate Reform Act will be published soon. Click Here for PDF of Surname Draft, July 17, 2008
