This Friday, a program examines the growing problem of dementia in society—specifically its impact on attorneys and the legal profession.
It follows on the heels of a terrifically successful February program touching on the topic. That CLE reached more than 1,000 registrants nationwide (which I covered here). But this seminar on Friday focuses on the needs of and processes for Arizona practitioners.
Here is information about the program, titled “Spotlight on Dementia: Arizona Lawyers, Judges and the Practice of Law” (May qualify for up to 2 CLE/1 Ethics).
When: April 7, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Where: McAuliffe CLE Center, 4201 N. 24th Street, Phoenix
Alzheimer’s and other dementias do not typically announce their arrival in a sudden manner. The gradual onset of the disease means that subtle changes in a person’s behavior or performance may not be initially recognized as dementia. Co-workers and colleagues are frequently one of the first to notice changes. This program addresses dementia issues as they pertain to attorneys and judges.
Program highlights include:
- Recognizing symptoms of dementia, treatment options and ongoing care
- Duties and obligations of Arizona lawyers and judges and practical approaches to follow if one suspects a colleague or client has dementia
- Resources for patients, families and caregivers
- Hon. Louraine Arkfeld, Tempe Municipal Court (ret.)
- Justice Clint Bolick, Arizona Supreme Court
- Hon. Louis Dominguez, Surprise City Court
- Jan Dougherty, MS, RN, FAAN, Banner Alzheimer’s Institute
- Hon. Margaret Downie, Arizona Court of Appeals – Division One
- James Fitzpatrick, Alzheimer’s Association, Desert Southwest Chapter
- Marsha Goodman, Frazer, Ryan, Goldberg and Arnold, LLP
- Lisa Panahi, State Bar of Arizona
- Hon. Roxanne Song Ong, Phoenix Municipal Court (ret.)
