Welcome to the 2013 National Aging and Law Institute. Making a caring community a reality for our clients is a formidable task at a time when health and long-term care systems are out of reach for many, public benefits programs face budget cuts, and the population is aging rapidly. The National Aging and Law Institute will provide you with the multidisciplinary skills and knowledge to ensure you can meet your clients’ and communities’ needs holistically. This year’s Institute is a unique educational event that blends advanced substantive programming for attorneys both in private practice and in non-profit public interest practice, as well as for other non-attorney advocates in the aging network. Plan to join your peers to learn, network, and engage with leading experts in the field. With more than 25 high-quality, in-depth sessions, there is something for everyone.

NAELA has partnered with a coalition of national organizations to ensure that you get a unique opportunity to learn and network. This joint conference is hosted by NAELA and co-sponsored by the National Aging and Law Conference (NALC), a coalition formed by NAELA, the Center for Medicare Advocacy, the American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging, the National Senior Citizens Law Center, the Center for Social Gerontology, the National Consumer Law Center, and the AARP Foundation Litigation.
