Introduction to Elder Law

Here's a great new practice area for paralegals!

Elder law practice has grown in response to the burgeoning senior population. As baby boomers retire, the legal needs of senior clients vary with their family and socio-economic circumstances. More experienced elder law paralegals are needed to provide the solutions required for the unique concerns of an aging population. A special sense of professional satisfaction motivates many paralegals who help to resolve the very real problems faced by seniors in their community.

In this fascinating one-hour webinar taught by a seasoned pro, we'll cover:

  • What is Elder Law
  • Who is the Client
  • Conflicts of Interest
  • Confidentiality Issues
  • Advance Directives
  • Guardianship and Conservatorship
  • Medicare and Medicaid
  • Housing
  • Aging in Place
  • Leaving the Traditional Home
  • Elder Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation
  • Abuse: Financial, Emotional, Physical, Sexual
  • Neglect: Lack of Food, Shelter, Health Care
  • Fraud and Identity Theft

Elder Law is an exciting area of law addressing the many diverse issues that affect the elderly such as end-of-life decisions, health care, housing, and unfortunately, elder abuse.  This webinar will discuss the basics of elder law, provide resources, and discuss the vital role the paralegal plays in assisting the Elder Law attorney.
