Combatting Financial Elder Abuse
This course explores the California laws that seek to protect the elderly from financial abuse and those which remedy abuse that has occurred. The student will receive a 400 page workbook, written by the professor, gratis. The workbook contains all relevant code sections and numerous case studies. Further, in this dynamic five week course students will learn how to draft: a legal memorandum evaluating the capacity of an elder; an elder abuse petition and memorandum of points and authorities; and trust provisions which seek to protect elderly clients. In addition, a social worker from Adult Protective Services and a professional fiduciary will make presentations to the class.
