Statutory Updates

Stetson University College of Law, by and through the Center for Excellence in Elder Law and the Elder Consumer Protection Program, produces certain statutory monitoring and update materials for the use by and the benefit of the public and professional communities. The statutory monitoring and update component consists of researching, identifying, collecting, compiling, and disseminating comprehensive statutory information on U.S. state and territory consumer protection statutes, adult protection statues, elevated crime statues, and mandatory reporting statutes. A uniform process is developed and applied to produce a product that provides a stand-alone compilation of information regarding consumer protection, adult protection, elevated crimes, and mandatory reporting statutes for each U.S. state and territory.
