Chicago Declaration on the Rights of Older Persons

The John Marshall Law School of Chicago is using its 21st Belle R. and Joseph H. Braun Memorial Symposium as a platform to draft "The Chicago Declaration on the Rights of Older Persons." This human rights document will explore a number of important areas affecting older persons and provide a basis for further U.N. work on this important and often overlooked group of persons. 

The 2014 International Elder Law & Policy Conference will be held on Thursday July 10, 2014 and Friday, July 11, 2014 at The John Marshall Law School, 315 South Plymouth Court, Chicago, Illinois 60604.

Goals: The Conference will bring together international scholars, advocates, and policy makers to participate in an academic discussion on the law, policy, and implementation of legal protections for older persons around the globe. This conference parallels the current discussions of the United Nations Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing. The Conference participants will draft a model International Declaration of Rights for Older Persons.2014 International Elder Law and Policy
