Learning level: Intermediate/Advanced

The Canadian Elder Law Conference is a two-day forum on the law and policy issues impacting older clients, featuring practical skill-based sessions, updates on hot topics, and current research on law and aging-related issues. Elder law is multi-faceted, touching on diverse areas of practice including wills and estates, family law, pensions and benefits, healthcare rights, privacy law, and criminal law. Expect sessions on topics such as mental capacity, substitute decision making, advance planning, and practical and ethical issues in terms of representation of clients with mental capacity issues. Hear from practice leaders from across the country including lawyers, medical experts, and financial sector professionals.

After taking this program, you will:

  • be able to identify and address the legal issues that impact your older client
  • gain familiarity with recent trends, cases, developments, and research in the law with respect to elder law topics such as long-term care, mental capacity, undue influence, independent legal advice, financial abuse, and adult protection
  • understand the legal, practical, and ethical issues in relation to older clients with mental capacity and self-neglect issues
