The more intellectual firepower is applied to examining and improving Florida’s probate-related laws, the better off we all are. So it is good news indeed for Florida practitioners that according to this press release Adam Hirsch, a leading authority on wills and trusts, has been named the William and Catherine VanDercreek Professor of Law at The Florida State University College of Law.

Over the past two years, Professor Hirsch worked as a consultant to the subcommittee of the Real Property Probate and Trust Section of The Florida Bar that drafted a comprehensive revision to Florida’s statute covering disclaimers of inheritances. The Florida Legislature recently enacted the statute, and it awaits the governor’s signature.
