As a practitioner, I found myself saying many times last year “Why has everything become so complicated?” Each matter requires thought, care and skill – and that is certainly the case for the specialist elder law practitioner. In crafting this year’s programme, our team of elder law practitioners have considered the issues that challenge them – managing finances, international tax issues, relationship property issues, family conflict and, of course, capacity. To assist each of us in building our resources, the 2019 Elder Law Intensive provides considered papers with practical input from skilled legal practitioners and also specialists from other disciplines. The operation of bank accounts by family and friends on behalf of an elderly person has been an issue of great concern to many practitioners. Banking Ombudsman Nicola Sladden will share her views and consider best practice in conjunction with practitioner Fleur McDonald. It is a great honour to have this year’s conference opened by the Minister for Seniors and to hear her kōrero on her vision for our elderly community in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Chair: Mary Joy Simpson
In this intensive you will be:
Property lawyers, family lawyers and general practitioners. Other professionals who work with the elderly may also be interested.
