Child/Elder Law - LAWS505

This unit examines the impact that age has on the interactions that individuals have with the law. It examines the ways in which the law protects, empowers and also negatively impacts on the lives of children and the elderly. This course equips students to understand the national and international legal frameworks surrounding children and the elderly and the way these frameworks operate (and in many cases fail to operate). The unit draws on expertise within the Law School in the areas of Child Law and Elder Law.
