As a professional working with the elderly, it is imperative you have a grasp on the multidisciplinary nature of elder law, along with your obligations.

Over five, intensive one-day modules – spread out over 5 weeks – you will develop comprehensive knowledge and tools to help you navigate the demanding, complex environment that is Elder Law. You will gain practical skills, enjoy a forum for the understanding of fundamental issues and network with professionals and colleagues also working with elder clients.

This program goes beyond the traditional approach to the subject matter and explores the aging process to better understand the circumstances of older adults. There is emphasis on skills-based learning, with in-class lectures being supplemented with group exercises, role play simulations, case studies and peer interactions. In the third module, you will participate in breakout sessions, requiring live attendance. You may choose to attend this online (Live, online attendance option) OR in-person (Blended registration option).
