The South Carolina Bar Elder Law Committee and the CLE Division proudly present “Elder Law and Special Needs Practice in South Carolina.” This comprehensive and practical program is designed to guide you through key issues of this discipline, and features the brand new CLE publication A Practical Guide to Elder and Special Needs Law in South Carolina, edited and authored by Franchelle Millender and many of our distinguished faculty.
This powerful seminar will provide up-to-date information on recent trends in elder law and special needs practice, as well as unerring guidance on best practices for representing your older clients, whether their concerns center on short or long term care, estate and tax planning, Medicaid, Medicare, VA benefits, SS or SSI, or nursing home care, and also includes a full hour devoted to the special ethics issues arising from representing the vulnerable adult.
Packed with 6.25 hours of MCLE credit, including 2.25 hours of Estate Planning and Probate, as well as Taxation Law Specialization Credit, this intermediate to advanced level seminar offers a unique opportunity to learn from some of South Carolina’s leading elder, special needs and estate planning practitioners, as well as receive a copy of the only elder law and special needs resource of its kind in South Carolina.
