Cohen to share fertility law insights with estates lawyers
Toronto fertility lawyer Sara Cohen will share her expertise on the issues estate lawyers should consider when advising clients in matters involving frozen human reproductive material at an upcoming program presented by the Ontario Bar Association (OBA).
On Sept. 27, Cohen, founder of Fertility Law Canada at D2Law LLP, will join fellow speakers at ‘The Intersection between Assisted Human Reproduction and Estates’ program to discuss questions such as: 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?; and Are children born from frozen embryos after the death of a parent considered "issue" or "children" for estate distribution purposes?
The program, part of the OBA's 2016-2017 Trusts and Estates Passport series, will run from noon-2 p.m. at 20 Toronto St., 2nd floor, in Toronto, and via live webcast.
