About the Program

Today, and every day for the next 20 years, 10,000 more people will turn 65.  By 2030, 90 million Americans or 1 in 5 persons will be 65 years or older.  This panel, composed of experienced elder law practitioners, will discuss:

  • Ethical considerations when representing older persons, including diminished capacity and conflicts of interest;
  • Elder decision making, including guardianships and alternatives;
  • Healthcare and housing for the elderly, including the role of government and private benefits; and 
  • How to prevent elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
