Uniform Powers of Appointment Act Study Group

The Uniform Powers of Appointment Act Study Group was formed in August 2013 to consider the need for a uniform law on powers of appointment in Mississippi.  Adopted by the Uniform Law Commission in July 2013, the Uniform Powers of Appointment Act is intended to benefit estate planning practitioners who must draft enforceable provisions, and provide needed guidance to the courts that must interpret the powers of appointment granted by wills and trusts.
