This session will explore how and why attorneys assess capacity and the ethical obligations of an attorney when a client has diminished capacity.

Dementia Informed Lawyering Dementia and other causes of diminished capacity change the way lawyers need to communicate with our clients, and can result in unexpected behaviors. This session will offer guidance on effective communication and how to carefully respond to a client who is experiencing unexpected or disruptive behaviors.  This session includes developments since the 2019 CLE seminar on these topics co-sponsored by DSAAPD (Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Disabilities) and the Elder Law Section of the Delaware State Bar Association as this is an emerging area of understanding.
