Elder Law

The section reviews pending legislation and keeps its members appraised of changes in the laws. The goal is to provide practitioners with knowledge about elder clients and their legal concerns, and to educate the broader community. Members meet regularly each month, frequently hosting a speaker in a substantive area of this evolving field, providing CLE credits to its members. Topics include guardianship, conservatorship, Medicaid estate planning, health care, powers of attorney, advance medical directives, nursing home patient's rights, and elder abuse and exploitation. Many members of the section are also active in the Trust & Estate Section in areas of mutual interest. The section is responsible for the Senior Law Handbook, and furnishes its members with articles and new information.

"Ecological cremation/burial"

The Colorado Legislature passed a law in March that allows our clients to choose alternates to traditional cremation or burial.  Water cremation, human composting, ecological burials are all legal now.  Iris Irene from Water Cremation will discuss this process and the advantages to ecological disposition of final remains, preceded by a short presentation on the laws in Colorado regarding ecological burial/cremation by Rose Mary Zapor.
