The educational topic for the evening is "A Primer on Wills and Probate Law". Our speakers are Chavon Carr and Tariq Zafar, two local attorneys who are experienced in probate and estate law and in participating in wills clinics. We'll hear from them about the basic principles of forming a will and the issues that commonly come up when trying to aid pro bono clients with their estate planning. 

The pro bono opportunities highlighted at this meeting will be twofold: 
First, the Houston Bar Association is conducting a Will-a-thon on April 13th and May 11th. The HBA provides free wills to all Harris County low-income seniors, disabled persons, and veterans. More information is athttp://www.hba.org/services/will-a-thon/
