Elder Law & Disability Rights Section Study Group Webinar


Topic: Advance Directives

Advance Directives present a unique set of challenges for lawyers who are experienced in drafting legal documents but who may have little knowledge or experience regarding medical issues. This presentation provides an opportunity to hear from both an estate planning attorney and a medical doctor, in recognition of the dual nature of an Advance Directive as both a legal document and a medical document. The presenters will provide practical advice regarding how best to represent clients’ interests in this important arena, including specific drafting tips for lawyers as well as recommended steps the client should take after signing an Advance Directive.
