Mark Your Calendar!
This exciting new conference brings academics and practitioners together to talk about one of the hottest emerging areas of law – Elder Law. Join us for one and a half days and bring yourself up to speed on the latest developments across the country. Good practice relies on solid research and good theory is informed by practical experience. This is a unique conference where academics will share their research and practicing lawyers their experience and you are invited to participate.

The conference will also feature outstanding networking and social opportunities. Don’t miss out!

Who should attend?
All lawyers who deal with older adults, as well as professionals and academics who are interested in the impact of the law on the older adult. Whether you are a senior practitioner with a large practice in Elder Law or a junior lawyer looking for a growing area to develop, an in-house lawyer trying to develop protocols for the older adult or a managing partner designing best practices for your firm to deal with older adults, you will find what you need at ELDER LAW: THEORY AND PRACTICE.

You don’t want to miss it! Mark these dates on your calendar: June 12-13, 2009. The program brochure and registration information will be posted on the CBA web site shortly.
