About the Foundation

The mission of the NAELA Foundation is to promote the goals of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and advocate for the rights of older Americans and people with special needs. This is accomplished through litigation and regulatory advocacy, research, amicus briefs, and education and scholarships. The Foundation Litigation and Regulatory Advocacy Fund's objective is to establish good legal precedent in matters of critical importance to older Americans and people with special needs. Through the Cohn Sisters' Scholarships for Patient Advocacy, the Foundation awards scholarships to NAELA members in financial need so that they can attend national education events.
