Elder law encompasses a wide range of legal disciplines that are becoming increasingly relevant to a range of generations as a direct consequence of an aging population. This year’s Elder Law Intensive addresses a wide range of legal and planning issues of older clients who increasingly require skilled representation to prevent and resolve family disputes and to address the transitional issues of aging. Historically elder law may have been considered a discrete area of law by many practitioners. However, as this Intensive will clearly demonstrate that is no longer the case. The increasingly complex area of capacity will be explored with particular consideration given to different levels of capacity required, for example, to enter into an enduring power of attorney (EPA) compared with complex trust transactions. How to advise clients with diminished capacity will also be considered. The practical aspects and issues associated with multi-generational living arrangements will be canvassed in some detail. The EPA forms will be discussed as well as issues that can arise as a result of abuse by attorneys. The impact of the draft Trust Bill on aging trustees will be considered as well as an up-date on Family Protection Act claims and where the pendulum presently sits. As well as providing a fresh look at a range of thought-provoking topics the Intensive will also provide attendees with the opportunity to network with like-minded practitioners.Chair: Vicki Ammundsen
