ttu.edu

A Texas Tech law professor has earned another excellence in writing award.

Gerry Beyer, Governor Preston E. Smith Regents Professor of Law, has received the 2012 Excellence in Writing Award for the Best Cutting Edge Article – Trust & Estate.

The award comes from the editors of Probate & Property Magazine, an official publication of the Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section of the American Bar Association.

Beyer co-authored the article “When you pass on, don’t leave the passwords behind: planning for digital assets” with Naomi Cahn of George Washington University Law School.

“Planning for a person’s digital estate is growing in importance, and I recommend that everyone raise the issue with his or her estate planning attorney,” Beyer said.

The award marks the third time that Beyer has been presented with an excellence in writing award from the ABA.

“I was very surprised and excited to receive the award, especially because I learned about it while perusing the January issue of the magazine which contained the announcement,” Beyer said.

The article, which is available here, addresses issues dealing with the safekeeping and disposition of online assets such as email, banking, or even social media accounts.
