Gulfport, Fla. - The world’s leading experts on the legal issues of aging will gather during a conference Nov. 6 – 7 at the Radisson Resort Parkway in Kissimmee, Fla., near Orlando. The conference is sponsored by Stetson University College of Law, AARP, the American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging, and the National Senior Citizens Law Center.

Topics include fraud and elder abuse, access to health care, age discrimination, international human rights and guardianship across national borders.

“As the AARP seeks to become more involved in international policy making, this conference will bring together global thinking on the topic of law and aging. We chose to work with Stetson as a leader in law and aging among law schools,” said Wayne Moore, AARP’s Director of Advocacy Planning.

Program co-chair and Stetson professor Rebecca C. Morgan said various nations have much to share on the treatment of their senior population. “Aging issues cross borders, ethnicity and cultures.” Professor Morgan holds the Boston Asset Management Faculty Chair in Elder Law and is director of Stetson’s Center for Excellence in Elder Law.

Policy makers, academicians, attorneys and others interested in the area of elder law throughout the world are encouraged to attend the conference. To learn more about the conference visit www.law.stetson.edu/CLE/ or call (727) 562-7830.
