Albany Law School will host its 16th Annual Senior Citizens' Law Day on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event provides senior citizens and their caregivers with free legal assistance. Organized by the school's Government Law Center, the free community program includes more than 30 workshops to educate senior citizens, family members, advocates and care providers about significant aging-related legal issues.

Albany Law professors, attorneys and other experts will provide legal information and resources in educational workshops covering legal topics such as:

  • Identity Theft
  • How to Survive a Money Crunch
  • Retirement Planning
  • Health Care Proxies and Living Wills
  • Fighting Investment Fraud

Four Albany Law School professors will conduct a panel discussion on current initiatives for health care reform.

The Elder Law Section of the New York State Bar Association will also offer attendees free 30-minute individual meetings with elder law attorneys. Sign up for these sessions will be available on the morning of the event, and the number of appointments is limited.

Approximately 400 senior citizens are expected to attend. For more information, call 518-472-2329 or visit www.albanylaw.edu/seniorlawday.
