Presented in partnership with the WSBA Elder Law Section


With the change in Federal administration our Elder law practices are faced with emerging issues as we advise and advocate for our clients. This program presents current topics that address how we can better advise our clients of these changes and how to access programs and resources that your practice and your clients may need. Join us for this annual seminar of essential updates and emerging issues. To help your practice, the program will address specific issues facing elder law attorneys, including:


  • Getting the mid-term legislative updates you’ve come to count on this seminar to provide.
  • Getting to know the Washington State elder law practice resources available to your clients and their families.
  • Staying current on the complex and changing landscape of health care and related benefits.
  • Learning about the cognitive and decision making process for capacity as well as the mental health issues that shape capacity;
  • Addressing ethical issues related to capacity and decision making considering the cognitive abilities and the mental health of clients or their loved ones who you advise and advocate for.

Lunch will be provided and is included in the price!
