Program Description

Difficult professional ethical issues arise frequently in providing legal services to older clients, especially because of the complex interplay of family involvement, challenges of diminished capacity, and fiduciary arrangements.  Through the use of video vignettes, this program will enable attendees to recognize and respond appropriately to questions of who is the client, potential conflicts of interest, diminished capacity, justification for protective actions, and selected fiduciary dilemmas
