AGING AND THE LAW LISTSERV FOR APRIL 5, 2012

Listserv Member News: Professor Katherine Pearson of Dickinson School of Law at Penn State (and Director of the Elder Protection Clinic) will be one of the guests on Australian Public Radio on April 7, 2012. The radio program talk is entitled “Dutiful Sons & Daughters,” and is about filial support laws across the world. It airs at 5:05 pm Australia time, which is at about midnight Pacific Time, so I may wait until the morning to hear her!
