The Canadian Elder Law Conference is a two-day forum on the law and policy issues impacting older clients, featuring practical skill-based sessions, updates on hot topics, and current research on law and aging-related issues. Elder law multi-faceted, touching on diverse areas of practice including wills and estates, family law, pensions and benefits, healthcare rights, privacy law, and criminal law.
