LAW407 Elder Law and Succession

In this course you will study legal issues of particular significance to aged persons (‘elders’). Some issues—such as aged care accommodation—affect elders alone. Others—such as impaired decision-making capacity, enduring powers of attorney, social security entitlements, age discrimination, wills and family provision obligations—are of special importance to elders. You will also consider the ethical obligations of lawyers, executors, carers and guardians.
