The AALS Section on Aging and the Law will focus its annual meeting program on inequality and aging. The conception of the program is broad and intended to encompass all matters of legal concern that involve age and inequality. Potential topics include but are not limited to aging in the criminal justice system, contact between family and nursing home residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, the disparate impact of policies within the Medicare and Medicaid programs, vaccine distribution policies, the rights and wages of care workers, the impact of technology on access to legal assistance, and economic inequality in later life based on disability, gender, race, sexual orientation, or other characteristics.
If you are interested in participating, please send a 400-600 word description of what you would like to discuss. We particularly encourage submissions from junior scholars and members of underrepresented groups in legal academia. Submissions should be sent to Professor Alexander A. Boni-Saenz, email@example.com by June 1, 2021.
