*****

Exponential growth in the senior population, accompanied by an increase in programs and benefits, has created a rapidly expanding need for legal assistance for the elderly.  Whatever your area of practice, this seminar will provide you with the essential information and practical strategies you need to protect your clients – or even your own family.

*****

Registration Options: You can attend this seminar “live” either by attending in person at the venue, or by watching a live webcast on your computer. The Alabama Bar Association counts both as “live” credits.

If you are attending in person, you may opt to receive an electronic link of the materials, or for an additional fee, you may order a printed copy which will be available at the seminar.

You may also pay for the in person seminar by credit card or check.
