End-of-Semester Topics: Wrapping Up in Elder Law

I sometimes try to hold a provocative or interesting case until the last session of an Elder Class.  This semester I asked the students to read:

The combo seemed to work well, giving students a chance to revisit a number of issues from the semester.  For, example, we talked about the role of an attorney in advising family members. In the Irving case, did  either the daughter or the son have legal advice (the same lawyer?) regarding the roles they took when their mother was admitted to the nursing home?  If anyone would like my outline of questions for students on these two documents, feel free to email me. 

And if any of you have a great way to end the semester in either Elder Law or Wills, Trusts & Estates, please share!

Have everyone draft a will for a family member or themselves who doesn't have one.
