Elder Law

The section reviews pending legislation and keeps its members appraised of changes in the laws. The goal is to provide practitioners with knowledge about elder clients and their legal concerns, and to educate the broader community. Members meet regularly each month, frequently hosting a speaker in a substantive area of this evolving field, providing CLE credits to its members. Topics include guardianship, conservatorship, Medicaid estate planning, health care, powers of attorney, advance medical directives, nursing home patient's rights, and elder abuse and exploitation. Many members of the section are also active in the Trust & Estate Section in areas of mutual interest. The section is responsible for the Senior Law Handbook, and furnishes its members with articles and new information.
