The interactive format will allow you to ask questions, gain practical skills and expand your network of professionals and colleagues also working with elder clients.

This program will focus on those emerging issues in elder law that are at the forefront and top of mind for anyone working in this field. Whether it is new legislation, a continued area of struggle, new case law or an issue in the news. There will be ample opportunity to ask those pressing questions and interact with presenters and peers. You will walk away with a binder of resources that you will return to again and again.
