Professor Deborah Gordon Presents at Wisconsin Law Review Symposium on Socioeconomic Factors in Wills and Estates

Professor Deborah Gordon

October 09, 2018

Professor Deborah Gordon will discuss her paper, “Engendering Trust,” at the Wisconsin Law Review Symposium, “Wills, Trusts and Estates Meets Gender, Race and Class” on Oct. 12.

An authority on language, emotion and gender in inheritance law, Gordon will present a paper that explores the role that gender plays with trusts and trustees, in both language and effect.  The paper examines characteristics of trusts, including divided ownership, trustee role and privacy from the perspective of gender.

Gordon will join colleagues Karen Sneddon from Mercer University School of Law and Carla Spivack from Oklahoma City University School of Law on a panel moderated by Keith Findley of the University of Wisconsin Law School: “Voices in the Wilderness: Whose Voices Does the Law Leave Out?”
