Strategies for Reaching Older Adults

Through Remote Legal Services

Delivery 

When: Wednesday, January 27, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

The COVID-19 pandemic, along with other natural disasters and emergencies, has created additional barriers for older adults to access legal assistance. Over the past year, attorneys and advocates have deployed creative models to address the barriers associated with providing in-person legal services. This webcast will highlight promising practices from legal assistance providers, including an elder law phone clinic and a virtual medical-legal partnership. Presenters will share details on staffing, supplies, and strategies used to implement their models and will discuss how these practices might continue to be utilized beyond the pandemic to serve individuals with the greatest economic or social need.  

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify opportunities to address barriers to legal service delivery;
  • Understand what is needed to implement the models shared; and
  • Determine how these delivery models might be used beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

Presenters:

  • Dave Ballard, Alaska Legal Services Corporation
  • Sarah Galvan, Justice in Aging
  • Manohar Sukumar, Public Law Center

 Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you. 

This webcast will be recorded and available on our website shortly after the presentation. The recording and training materials will also be emailed to all registrants within a few days after the training.

The webcast will take place on Wednesday, January 27, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.
