ETHICAL AND LEGAL IMPACT OF FIDUCIARY DUTY ACCOUNTABILITY
SUCCESSOR TRUSTEES, POWERS of ATTORNEY AND THE LEGAL AND EITHICAL IMPACT OF FIDUCIARY DUTY ACCOUNTABILITY. This talk will focus on the interesting fact that the rule of law is totally dependent upon ethical actors and economic resources to be effective; without both of these underlying social forces the legal rules established to protect us have absolutely no power nor impact.
