The conference on The Ageing brain: decision making, fraud, and undue influence is conducted by Harvard Law School on April 27.

Conference Objective

With over 70 million Baby Boomers retiring, elder financial exploitation has been labelled the “Crime of the 21st Century.” In this half-day event, we will explore the neuroscience, psychology, and legal doctrine of financial decision-making in older adults.

How does the ageing brain make financial decisions, and when is it uniquely susceptible? How can courts best use science to improve their adjudication of disputes over “competency”, “capacity”, and “undue influence”?

Is novel neuroimaging evidence of dementia ready for courtroom use? This conference will bring together experts in medicine, science, and law to explore these important questions and chart a path forward for dementia and the law.

This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and registration is required.
