Judicial education on abuse in later life and elder abuse is essential for judges sitting on all types of cases because elder abuse may be present in a civil, criminal, family, probate or even juvenile court context. Elder abuse is underreported and cases may not present as one might expect. This session will highlight some of the prevailing themes in judicial education on this topic and provide a snapshot of what judges are facing in various jurisdictions in responding to cases of elder abuse before them.
As a result of this presentation, you will be better able to:
- Describe the importance of access to judicial education on abuse in later life and elder abuse for judges across the U.S.
- Identify fundamental components of judicial education that are an essential foundation for judges presiding over cases where abuse in later life is present
- Consider how key learnings from the CA judicial education replication of the Enhancing Judicial Skills in Abuse in Later Life Cases apply to your own continuing education as a judge or judicial officer
