OBA Elder Law PROGRAM | 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)

With our aging and multicultural population, the importance of understanding the impact of our client’s backgrounds and communities on their decision-making also becomes apparent. Hear our expert faculty’s helpful insights on how cultural competency can provide the necessary guideposts to assist you when working with an increasingly diverse population, including:  

  • Capacity assessments in a multicultural community;
  • Family communication and solicitor-client privilege;
  • Legal obligations to non-English/non-French speaking clients;
  • Assessing elder abuse in different ethno-cultural communities;
  • Managing conflicts and understanding context behind healthcare decisions and instructions


This vital program will help enhance your ability to understand and respect the context from which your client is making decisions and find creative solutions to ensure that you are providing the best legal options to your clients.
