STEP Western Australia

We welcome all professional advisers, educators and students with a trusts and estates focus in their practice, whether for private or corporate clients.

STEP Western Australia branch was officially launched on 22 July 2009 and now has more than 80 members.  Membership is open to a wide range of professionals who work in the area of trusts and estates.

We hold educational seminars on a monthly basis (excluding January and June), usually on a Wednesday or Thursday evening in the middle of the month.   These seminars cover a wide range of topics within the fields of trusts, succession planning, estates and tax.  For the benefit of our members outside the Perth metropolitan area, some seminars are streamed online.  We are approved as a CPD provider by the Legal Practice Board of Western Australia.   Prior to each seminar, there is an opportunity to meet and network with other members.

We encourage the study of succession law by donating prizes in this subject at Murdoch University and Curtin University.  We have links with other professional bodies and have held joint seminars with The Tax Institute.  We are also represented on the Probate Committee of the Supreme Court of Western Australia.
