The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc. (NAELA) was founded in 1987. It is a professional association of attorneys who are dedicated to improving the quality of legal services provided to seniors and people with special needs.
The NAELA membership is comprised of attorneys in the private and public sectors who deal with legal issues affecting seniors and people with disabilities. Members also include judges, professors of law, and students. Membership in the Academy is open to attorneys and all those who possess a juris doctorate or equivalent degree and are licensed or authorized to practice law under the jurisdiction of any country.
The Academy sponsors continuing legal education programs on Elder Law for attorneys. It provides publications and educational materials to its members on a wide range of Elder Law topics. Moreover, the Academy seeks to provide support to other organizations serving seniors and people with disabilities. NAELA also examines and advocates on public policy issues facing seniors and people with special needs. However, it does not provide direct legal services.
