Time for Geriatric Jurisprudence


Time for Geriatric Jurisprudence

Israel Doron et al. Gerontology.


Geriatrics and law may not be natural bedfellows. Moreover, law and lawyers were not part of the professions that were the 'founding fathers' of the field of geriatrics. In this short viewpoint we invite the readers to consider a new inter-disciplinary research approach that attempts to combine jurisprudence with geriatrics. Geriatric jurisprudence is a special and timely opportunity for doctors and lawyers to come together in a new, different and more united way to jointly conceptualize a medico-legal theory of aging to better serve our shared community: older and aging persons.
