ELDER LAW STUDIES

Editor: Nina Kohn, Assistant Professor, Syracuse University - College of Law
Sponsor: The Elder Law Studies Journal is sponsored by Syracuse University College of Law, which offers a certificate in Gerontology in cooperation with the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs.
Description: The Elder Law Studies journal provides a forum for sharing current scholarship on elder law. Elder law is a specialized area of law focused on counseling and representing older persons or their representatives on later-in-life planning and other legal issues of particular importance to older adults. Unlike many other areas of the law, elder law is defined primarily by the client population to be served, not by a distinct set of legal doctrines. Accordingly, the Elder Law Studies Journal publishes articles that provide a learned, disinterested, and significant analysis of one or more legal issues of particular importance to older adults.
