Elder law – working with older clients

Posted by Michael Perkins | 09 January 2019 | News & Events

Every lawyer should be aware how the law is relevant to an ageing community.  There should be an understanding across the profession on how these legal issues relating to the elderly are examined in a broad social, cultural and ethical context. Issues of legal capacity are of pivotal importance for a practitioner in relation to contracts, medical treatment and end of life decisions.  This CPD event – run by the College of Law – focuses on educating lawyers operating in this space.

As an expert in the field, Nexus Law Group’s Michael Perkins will present at this event, addressing:

  • the skills required for the elder law practitioner; and
  • the ethical considerations for practitioners when elder abuse is present.
