About NAELA

  


The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc. (NAELA) was founded in 1987 as a professional association of attorneys who are dedicated to improving the quality of legal services provided to people as they age and people with special needs.

The NAELA membership is comprised of attorneys in the private and public sectors who deal with legal issues affecting people as they age and people with disabilities. Members also include judges, professors of law, and students. 

Education

The primary focus of the Academy is education. The Academy sponsors continuing legal education programs on Elder Law for attorneys throughout the year, and provides publications and educational materials to its members on a wide range of Elder Law topics.

Advocacy

The Academy seeks to provide support to other organizations serving people as they age and people with special needs. NAELA examines and advocates on public policy issues facing people as they age and people with special needs, but does not provide direct legal services. If you are seeking legal advice, please contact an Elder Law attorney in your community.
