Center for Excellence in Elder Law

Access and Justice for All™

The Center for Excellence in Elder Law was established to meet the increasing need for legal education and research in the field of law and aging. The Center provides legal education to law students, attorneys, and judges in the field of elder and special needs law and produces scholarly research and writing on issues impacting those who are older and/or have special needs.

Students who wish to focus their studies on elder law can apply for acceptance into the concentration in Elder Law. Attorneys who wish to gain knowledge about the practice of elder law can apply for admission to the LL.M. in Elder Law program (applications due by August 1).
