The New Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC)
New procedures for handling probate matters will come into effect on January 2, 2012 under the Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (“MUPC”). The Massachusetts Probate Court has extensively prepared for the implementation of these new procedures. Those handling probate matters in the Courts must now prepare themselves for the upcoming changes. The Trusts & Estates Section of the BBA will help you prepare with a CLE course that is designed as a practical guide to the application of the new MUPC to handle probate matters.
Attendees will learn from a panel of experts that include attorneys and Court personnel who have been extensively involved in the implementation of the MUPC in the Probate Court, as well as attorneys involved in the implementation of the MUPC in their own practices.
- Introduction to the new procedures
- Review of new forms that implement procedures under the MUPC

- Guidance for handling matters pending before the January 2, 2012 effective date
