Legal Issues re Powers of  Attorney, Vulnerable Clients and End-Of-Life Care

In contrast to general powers of attorney, EPAs only come into effect during the donor’s subsequent mental incapacity. EPAs may be restricted regarding the authority granted or the property captured by the power. Practitioners are commonly faced with the issue of having to create an enduring power of attorney for elderly or vulnerable clients. This one-hour lecture guides practitioners through the practicalities of creation, registration and subsequent Court applications which may arise when dealing with enduring powers of attorney.

The lecture covers a number of topics, including:

  • The Scope of EPAs
  • Creating EPAs
  • Registering EPAs
  • Court Applications
  • The future and End of Life Issues
  • Caselaw Update.
