The Canadian Centre for Elder Law and the Law Commission of Ontario welcome submissions for workshops, individual paper presentations and symposia/panel presentations for this year's Canadian Conference on Elder Law. The call for abstracts deadline is June 30, 2010, but early expressions of interest are strongly recommended.
The theme of this year's conference is "Developing an Anti-Ageist Approach to the Law." The conference will explore issues of elder rights, ageism and the law, access to justice, and law reform for older persons. While submissions related to the theme of the conference as described are encouraged, this call for abstracts embraces a broad variety of socio-legal topics related to law and aging that do not specifically deal with these issues.
The focus of this conference is law, but interdisciplinary abstracts are welcome for its workshops, panels or symposia.
Completed papers should be journal length (approximately 15 - 40 pages double-spaced). Written materials for all presentations must be submitted by Friday, October 1, 2010.
