The Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law Alumni Chapter recently offered a CLE on Elder Care, Protecting the Elderly: Demystifying Probate, at the University of Memphis Law School downtown. Sponsored in part by The Marston Group, PLC, the 6-hr credit course featured a Judge/Presenter panel and focused on representation of elderly clients across a broad range of substantive areas, including consumer protection, health care, tax/estate issues and other challenging and ever-changing topics faced by the elderly.
As a Law School Alumni Board member, Jimmy Dickey, Marston COO and Senior Partner, lauds this event as a way for adult learners to reflect on the effect our justice system has on the lives of a generation. As advocates for the aged, attorneys are afforded a unique perspective that challenges them to evaluate the judicial progress made over the last century on behalf of the elderly and the access to justice available to them. According to Dickey, “Staying updated and educated in the field of Elder Law is very important. As our clients reach retirement age, our firm is poised to play a key role both in their lives and in their financial planning.”
For this CLE event, the Educational Foundation contributions totaled $3300 and are intended for future Law School Scholarships.
