Katrin Sepp successfully defended her doctoral thesis
The School of Law of the University of Tartu has a new Doctor!
On 24 August Katrin Sepp succesfully defended her doctoral thesis “Legal Arrangements in Estonian Law Similar to Family Trusts”.
The work was supervised by Professor Janno Lahe (University of Tartu) and opposed by Associate Professor Dr. Magdalena Habdas (University of Silesia, Katowice).
The main objective of the dissertation was to find out whether and to what extent the existing asset management solutions in Estonian law make family wealth planning goals in a trust-like manner possible. Under consideration were the mandate agreement, the institutes of the pre/subsequent successor and testamentary executor and private foundations. A further objective of the work was to highlight the necessary changes to the existing legislation.
