Every year for the past seventeen years the Government Law Center of Albany Law School has sponsored Senior Citizens’ Law Day,  one of our community’s most popular and highly-regarded educational events for many years. We are hosting the 18th Annual Senior Citizens Law Day on April 21, 2012.

Albany Guardian Society, one of the region’s oldest charitable institutions dedicated to serving our aging population, is co-producing the event with us. Rick Iannello, Albany Guardian Society’s Executive Director, is very enthusiastic about his group’s involvement.  He describes Senior Citizens’ Law Day as offering both an opportunity for seniors and their families to learn more about the legal issues facing older adults in a sales-free environment, and private time for seniors to speak with attorneys about their personal concerns.

Highlights of the event include:

FREE workshops on approximately 30 relevant topics taught by experienced attorneys and other experts in the Capital Region.

The Pro Bono Senior Clinic, offered in partnership with the State Bar Association Elder Law Section, where attendees can sign up for a FREE 30-minute consultation with a practicing elder law attorney.

A FREE 250-page Senior Citizens’ Law Day guidebook about many of the workshop topics to take home for future reference.

Opportunities to talk to representatives of the supporting organizations, who are available at information tables throughout the day.
