PLGL237 - Elder Law


Credits: 3
Lecture: 3
Lab/Studio: 0
Prerequisite(s): PLGL-105 and PLGL-225 or instructor’s approval
Description: The purpose of this course is to train paralegals/legal assistants to perform, under the direction and supervision of a lawyer, “Elder Law” support work, which for the most part requires sufficient knowledge of legal concepts and which, absent the paralegal or legal assistant, would be performed by a lawyer. It is not intended to be a course which teaches individuals to plan or handle their own affairs involving “Elder Law” issues, or to assist others in planning or handling their affairs in these matters. It is not designed to teach document preparation in the absence of a supervising lawyer. A paralegal/legal assistant may not engage in the practice of law by accepting cases, giving legal advice, appearing in court, setting fees, etc. Engaging in the unauthorized practice of law is a criminal offense in the State of New Jersey. This course is designed to give an overview of the law, rules of procedure, ethical and professional responsibilities, and tasks essential to the role of the paralegal in assisting the attorney in matters relating to what has become known as “Elder Law.” NOTE: This course is offered only in the Spring term.
