The ACTEC Law Journal invited contributions to a special festschrift issue devoted to the life and work of Dennis Belcher, our ACTEC colleague and Past President of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. In academia, a festschrift is a volume of writings by different authors, typically meant to honor or memorialize someone who has made great contributions to their field. The editors of the ACTEC Law Journal believe it is appropriate and fitting to honor Dennis’ contributions to our profession in this special way.
