ACTEC Law Journal

ACTEC Law Journal

ACTEC, the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, is a very prestigious organization. It has approximately 2,600 fellows who have been elected to membership by demonstrating their skills through writing, speaking and other forms of public service. The most well-known practitioners and academics in the trust-and-estate field are ACTEC Fellows.

One of the central purposes of ACTEC is to study and improve trust, estate and tax laws, as well as professional responsibility in this area of practice. ACTEC’s professional responsibility commentaries are widely cited by courts, academics and practitioners. ACTEC and its fellows file amicus briefs, testify before Congress, provide in-depth analysis of administrative positions to the Internal Revenue Service and assist in the development of best practices for trust and estate lawyers. ACTEC periodically provides technical comments and expertise to Congress, the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of the Treasury.

Authors contributing to the ACTEC Journal include some of the most well-respected academics and practitioners in the field. The articles explore trust, estate and tax issues. Each ACTEC Fellow receives the journal, as do all ABA-accredited law schools and board members of the National College of Probate Judges. Non-fellows may, of course, also subscribe.

Student editors are involved in the article-editing process. Student staff members and editors are required to write a note, which may be submitted to the ACTEC Law Journal’s editors.
