Summary

This book is designed to serve as the main textbook for courses and seminars on the intersection of law and aging. This area of the law is of rapidly-increasing significance because of the demographic changes affecting the United States and, indeed, the rest of the world. The percentage of Americans aged 65 or older has more than tripled since the beginning of the twentieth century, and this percentage will rise even more as the so-called "Baby Boomers" begin to join the ranks of the elderly. As people age, they often face a bewildering array of legal issues, ranging from age discrimination to retirement planning, from elder abuse to assisted suicide.
