Center at the 2020 National Aging and Law Conference

The Center on Law & Aging was proud to sponsor again this year the annual National Aging and Law Conference that was entirely virtual in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

According to David Godfrey with the ABA Commission on Law and Aging, the 2020 conference drew the largest audience in the seven years that the ABA has hosted the program with 340 registered attendees. Mary Jane Ciccarello and Catheryn Koss, director and research coordinator for the Center, were two of the presenters in the opening session, 2020: Lessons Learned, Visions for the Future. The speakers explored the challenges faced by older adults in 2020, then talked about the transition by attorneys and other service providers to virtual services, virtual outreach and training, and supporting a virtual workplace. 

More information about the conference and its informative sessions, including written materials, is available through the ABA here.
