Course Description

The California End of Life Option Act ("EOLOA" or "the Act"), operative since June 9, 2016, impacts estate, trust, and probate practice in a variety of ways. This article explains the Act's eligibility and procedural criteria and shows how potential EOLOA fact patterns can implicate certain ethical rules of professional responsibility. Specifically, this article focuses on the interaction between the EOLOA and some of the updated Rules of Professional Conduct, effective since November 1, 2018.
