Join us to explore the issues estate lawyers should be considering when advising clients in both estate planning and estate administration where frozen human reproductive material is involved. Get up-to-speed on what you need to know, including:

  • Is human reproductive material property that can be dealt with in a Will?
  • Can an executor or attorney for personal care consent to the extraction of reproductive material on behalf of the deceased or grantor?
  • Are children born from frozen embryos after the death of a parent considered "issue" or "children" for estate distribution purposes?
