    Dealing with Cultural Differences in Estate Planning (Audio Product)

    In order to competently represent clients of diverse cultural backgrounds, lawyers must be aware of how cultural differences and cultural biases can affect estate-planning decisions.  As we work toward eliminating unintentional bias in the legal system and the profession, we need to be cognizant of how the questions we ask when we counsel our clients and the assumptions we make about their estate-planning goals may make members of certain groups feel excluded, insulted, or ignored.  Do you know which clients find questions about their property distributions after death to be offensive?  Which clients view questions related to advance health care directives to be tantamount to hastening an older relative’s death?  Can you distinguish between attitudes toward old age and elder abuse so that you can fulfill your special duties to clients who face mental or physical challenges?  The panelists will discuss these questions, the ways in which diverse clients may view other important aspects of estate planning, and how to recognize and eliminate bias in advising diverse clients.
