Some Thoughts On The End Of Exams

i know what wills are, but what's a trust? i kind of zoned out by the middle of the semester in that class.

On the other hand, i am considering legally changing my name to "the evidence queen."

See that girl, she knows the F.R.E.,
diggin' the evidence queen!
Oh yeah!

If they repeal the inheritance tax, you may never need to know what a trust is. The Senate Finance committee in the 90s said that the government receives $20 billion from the inheritance tax, but it costs society another $30 billion in accounting, administrative and legal costs.

Most of that $30 billion was spent in creating and administering trusts.

Greetings from an airport in BFE at about 12:30 in the morning.

I love that you insert an ABBA reference so adroitly.

Annie, it happens (or happened) to all of us; at some point you just lose it and zone out.

Like alcohol, some of us have more tolerance for it than others.

As time goes on, you may gain a little more respect for those that have weathered the storm, passed the bar and are out there humping it.

Someday you'll wish for the good old days of carefree law school; remember that I told you this.

Enjoy your Christmas break.

The Law is an Ass, Trusts, but verify.

"If they repeal the inheritance tax, you may never need to know what a trust is."

I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for the states to follow Congress's lead even if that does happen.

Trusts are on the Bar in IL.

Stay away from Chicago, Annie.
