Elder Law Section

senior citizens on park bench

The practice of elder law focuses on an array of legal issues particularly important to older people but important to many others as well. They include issues relating to retirement and estate planning, to powers of attorney, guardianship and other forms of substitute decision making, to private and public long-term care and other healthcare financing and to abuse of vulnerable individuals, among other issues.

The Elder Law Section offers opportunities for education and consultation on issues relevant to elder law practice. Occasional seminars are complemented by the Section's active list serve — an ongoing conversation among members, responding to questions and sharing insights. The Section also offers opportunities for serious exploration of systemic problems identified by members and for policy advocacy on issues relating to the administration of justice.

For general questions, please email inquiries to sections@wbsa.org. To get involved and learn more about the Elder Law Section, please contact Section Chair Carla Calogero.
