The Program:

“Colorado Uniform Trust (CUTC) Overview”

A new comprehensive statutory trust code was adopted by the Colorado General Assembly effective January 1, 2019 and applies to most trusts created before, on, or after that date. CUTC is based upon the national Uniform Trust Code promulgated by the Uniform Law Commission. The national act was extensively studied, debated, and modified by the Trust and Estate Section and the Elder Law Section of the Colorado Bar Association. This overview of CUTC will summarize the 14 parts of the new code, including a discussion of the mandatory versus default requirements, new definitions, and changes from prior Colorado trust law.
