AALS AGING AND THE LAW LISTSERV FOR APRIL 30, 2012

SECTION NEWS: Professor Barry Kozak, the Director of Elder Law Studies at the Center for Tax Law and Employee Benefits at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago (and our Section Chair) has informed the leadership of the Section that there will be a Joint Program at the AALS Annual Conference in New Orleans, from January 4 – 8, 2013. Our Section will join the Section on Trusts & Estates for the program. According to Barry, the three panels will address the following:

1. Capacity issues and conflicts between estate & trust documents and elder law documents;

2. Conflicts of interest with family members as beneficiaries in T & E documents and as agents, guardians or conservators in elder law documents and court orders; and

3. Trust protector clauses and issues with T & E and elder law documents.

Barry is looking for volunteers to present on or moderate for the panels. There will also be a call for papers. If you are interested, please contact Barry at: 6kozak@jmls.edu
