  • Elder Law
    (Formerly DCL 510) The purpose of the course is to introduce students to the unique clients needs of the elder client and their families. The elderly pose a unique risk to abuse and victimization, which, while similar to that of a minor, require a recognition of their status as a legally competent adult. The course will address the most salient issues of an elderly client base: the attorney client relationship; the responsibilities and duties imposed by the durable powers statutes, entitlement programs, housing alternatives, Medicaid planning, abuse, guardianships, estate planning and family law issues.
