Touro Law this summer announced the creation of the Longevity and Aging Law Institute. Professor Artusio will direct the Institute. The idea for the Institute came from Bob Abrams, who will chair the advisory board. According to the press release:
The Institute has been designed to provide attorneys and other professionals with the information and resources they need to serve the 100 million Americans who are 50 years of age or older. Through Touro Law Center’s Continuing Legal Education (CLE), the Institute will provide CLE programs and continuing education credits for programs developed for other licensed professionals such as social workers. The Institute will address a wide variety of educational topics, including fragility of capacity, adult children with special needs, bankruptcy, confidentiality, emergency preparedness, estate planning and administration, financial planning, grandparents’ rights, mental health issues, retirement, taxes and many others. As the Institute grows, plans include a research agenda focused on law and public policy in the area of longevity and aging law.
