Former Fellow Presents Research

Published in Center News

Catheryn Koss presented her work on advance directive completion among older married couples at the 2016 Law and Society Association conference in New Orleans. Her presentation focused on ways to study later-life decision making using dyadic research methods. These methods allow researchers to model how spouses influence on each others' choices and behaviors. Nina Kohn also presented work she and Catheryn recently completed on whether and how attorneys can represent clients who are subject to guardianship. Their article "Lawyers for Legal Ghosts: The Legality and Ethics of Representing Persons Subject to Guardianship" will be published in the next issue of the University of Washington Law Review.

Catheryn Koss is a former fellow and serves as the Fellows Coordinator. Nina Kohn received an academic research grant in 2014 for her work on elder law and gerontology.
