The 25th Annual Elder Law Institute presents current legal topics that are of importance to your older clients, and all your younger clients with aging parents. Many of the subjects covered this year focus on planning for incapacity, paying for health care, and maintaining the legal autonomy and dignity of your aging clients. The subject of elder law is becoming a part of every practice - we cannot stop the aging process, nor the reality that we live longer and that the problems and programs that the elderly rely on become more complex.
