All over the world, there is a growing interest in the relationship between law and aging: How does the law influence the lives of older people? Can rights, advocacy and representation advance the social position of the aged and combat ageism? What are the new and cutting-edge frontiers in the field of elder law? Should there be a new international human rights convention in this field? These are only a few of the many questions that arise. This book attempts to answer some of these questions and to set the agenda for the future development of elder law across the globe. Taking into account existing research and knowledge, leading scholars from different continents (North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia) present in this book original and novel ideas regarding the future development of elder law. These ideas touch upon key topics such as elder guardianship, citizenship, mental capacity, elder abuse, human rights and international law, family relationships, age discrimination, and the right to die. This book can thus serve as an important reference work for all those interested in understanding where law and aging are headed, and for those concerned about the future legal rights of older persons.

Elder Law: Cases and Materials, Fifth Edition, continues the broad coverage of many elder law topics including Social Security, employer provided pensions, age discrimination in employment, provision of acute and chronic health care, paying for health care including Medicare and Medicaid, housing, mental capacity and guardianship, abuse, and the ethical issues that arise when dealing with older clients. Because many use the book as a "jumping off point" for more extensive reading or discussion, the authors have clarified and expanded the explanatory material so that the student can understand the framework of complex programs such as Medicare and Social Security. In recognition of the importance of the extraordinary cost of long-term care, the authors created a new chapter, "Paying for Long-Term Care," that lays out how Medicaid operates, explains basic Medicaid "planning," the advantages and drawbacks of long-term care insurance, and discusses the other means, such as residence in a continuing care retirement community, that some use to pay for long-term care. In the chapter dealing with the ADEA, the new Fifth Edition features the latest cases that attempt to apply the statute to the complex world of employment. The reforms to Medicare in the last few years are fully covered, and the coverage of Medicaid has been rewritten to make it clearer. The authors have updated and added statistics that illuminate what life is like for older Americans and have expanded the "Questions" that will stimulate students to think carefully about the policies that underlie elder law. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

Theories on Law and Ageing

The Jurisprudence of Elder Law

Category: Family & Relationships

Page: 157

View: 9343

This book is about trying to answer questions. These questions were well introduced by Prof. Margaret Hall in the opening of her chapter in this book: “The fundamental idea of ‘law and aging’ as a discrete category of legal principle and theory is controversial: how and why are ‘older adults’ or ‘seniors’ or ‘elders’ (the very terminology is controversial and fraught with difficulties) a discrete and distinct group for whom ‘special’ legal thought and treatment is justified? For some, a category of law and aging is inherently paternalistic, suggesting that older persons are, like children, especially in need of the protection of the law. In this sense, the argument continues, the category itself internalizes ageist presumptions about older adults and is therefore inherently flawed and even harmful. If certain older adults are, because of physical or mental infirmities, genuinely in need of an enhanced level of legal protection, this entitlement should be conceptualized in terms of their disability; older adults are not a distinct group but an arbitrarily delineated demographic category which contains within it any number of groups that are legitimately distinct for the purposes of legal theory (the di- bled; women; persons of colour; Aboriginal persons; rich and poor; etc.) Indeed, the arti- cial category of “older adults” may be seen as obfuscating, submerging these more meaningful distinctions.
