Elder Law Section MCLE Remote Program


Protecting Your Elderly Clients from Unfair Arbitration Agreements



Speaker: Margaret Battersby Black - Levin & Perconti

Increasingly, long term care facilities are putting unfair arbitration agreements into multi-page admissions agreements to their facilities.  Family members admitting their loved ones to such facilities are under a great deal of stress and often do not have the time or knowledge to know that these agreements should not be signed.  The law can only protect our clients from these unconscionable agreements in certain circumstances. Learn the way these agreements are infringing upon your clients rights and what you can do to advise them and protect against signing away their rights.


Attendees will increase knowledge of:

1. Identifying clients ahead of time who may face these challenges and updating their powers of attorney accordingly.
2. Providing an outline of legal remedies once an agreement is signed.
3. Outlining the current status of Illinois Law on the validity of arbitration agreements.
4. Learning how you can educate and advise your clients in advance of the dangers of signing these agreements.


Date and Time: November 18, 2020 from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Live Webinar via Zoom – Instructions and a link will be provided by email in advance of the program.
