Advocates Academy: Webinars and Events
Civil Remedies for Empowering Victims of Elder Financial Exploitation
Date: Wednesday, December 11th, 2019
Time: 11:00 AM -12:30 PM Pacific Time (2:00-3:30 PM EST)
Hosted by: California Elder Justice Coalition
The civil justice system offers victims of financial exploitation powerful tools for seeking justice. However, opportunities are often missed because victims don’t know their options or believe they are unaffordable. Service providers are often unprepared to direct victims to the civil system. In 2014, the National Center for Victims of Crime hosted the Elder Financial Exploitation Roundtable, supported by the Huguette Clark Foundation for the Protection of Elders, that brought together experts and advocates from around the country to explore remedies for exploitation. Among the group’s recommendations was to craft model elder financial exploitation statutes. Following the event, NCVC was awarded additional funds to oversee the creation of model statutes.
This webinar will describe the model statutes and provide participants with:
Panelists will include:
Director, Training & Technical Assistance
The National Center for Victims of Crime
Clinical Assistant Professor & Director, Veterans Legal Clinic
University of Michigan Law School
Please note that the webinar will be recorded and posted on CEJC's website for anyone who is not able to join on December 11.
Please contact CEJC's Coordinator Christine Damonte at ChristineDamonteCEJC@gmail.com with any questions regarding the webinar.
This National Elder Justice Advocates Academy webinar is hosted by CEJC with support from the Huguette Clark Foundation for the Protection of Elders.
