Welcome!

The Elder Law Journal is the oldest scholarly publication in the country dedicated to addressing elder law issues. We are an academic publication published bi-annually by the students of the University of Illinois College of Law.

The Elder Law Journal publishes manuscripts which not only address policy decisions, but also guide practicing attorneys. Thus, the scope of The Elder Law Journal makes it the perfect addition to the libraries of attorneys who advise clients on estate planning, living wills, arrangements for long-term nursing care, qualifying for Medicaid, as well as other areas of law pertinent to the elderly. Additionally, articles in The Elder Law Journal are of interest to scholars and professionals in fields such as social work, gerontology, ethics, and medicine.
