This spring the firm's Jonathan W. Michael is teaching an Estate Planning course at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. The course is designed for students seeking their Juris Doctor and Masters of Law degrees.

"It is great to work with students who are interested in our area of law," says Michael. "It is also an honor to be appointed to the faculty at The John Marshall Law School."

The course is designed to introduce students to Illinois common law, Illinois statutes and Federal tax laws associated with estate planning techniques. The course will provide students with a technical and practical understanding of the application of these concepts and laws. A student who completes the class should have sufficient knowledge to understand the basic groundwork of the area of estate planning.

Students in the class are a mix of full and part time. The class also consists of practicing attorneys seeking their Masters of Law (in Taxation) who are working at a law firm and practicing in this area. Michael is a member of the adjunct faculty at The John Marshall Law School and the Wealth and Succession Planning practice at the firm.

In the spring Michael will also teach an IICLE (Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education) course on advanced estate planning techniques.
