Stetson offers new online degree

Starting in 2009, non-lawyers around the nation who work with the elderly will have an opportunity to obtain a Masters of Studies in Law and Aging from Stetson University College of Law in Tampa Bay, Fla.

Courses will be offered online for the broad range of people who work with the nation's growing senior population, including health care givers, geriatric care managers, bank trustees, financial planners and consultants, government workers and researchers and paralegals.

“Trends indicate that by 2030, one in every five Americans will be a senior," said professor Rebecca C. Morgan, Boston Asset Management chair in elder law and director of Stetson's Center for Excellence in Elder Law.  “This new graduate program is designed for the growing number of people in this country who work closely with our exploding aging population.”
