Course Description

An important subset of estate planning involves an area of law that has been dubbed "elder law." Families confront a myriad of financial challenges when a loved one needs long term care. Students will be taken through case studies and a group project to expose them to the planning options that exist when advising families on protecting their life's savings from the costs of care. This course covers select laws and pertinent cases dealing with Medicaid, Medicare, guardianship, Social Security programs, investments, trusts, insurances, and taxation of income, gifts and estates. Legal documents typically indicated for elder law matters are also reviewed.
