25th Annual Elder & Special Needs Law

The 25th Annual Elder and Special Needs Law Symposium offers insight from respected elder and special needs law practitioners and aging-service professionals from North Carolina. This year's program includes a diverse array of topics for all attorneys, whether new to the practice or a seasoned professional.

Attendees can expect to:

  • Gain insight into special needs planning issues and hot topics
  • Explore issues surrounding NC Medicaid Transformation — where it is and where it is going
  • Learn how to protect clients from the growing sophistication of scammers and those who take advantage of vulnerable adults
  • Review ethical considerations when working with families pursuing guardianships and as a guardian ad litem.
