The National Center on Law & Elder Rights has announced the release of the Elder Justice Toolkit. According to the website
The Elder Justice Toolkit is a resource created by the National Center on Law & Elder Rights. It contains practical information on civil legal remedies, practice tips, and sample pleadings for attorneys seeking protection and redress for their clients who have experienced elder abuse. Multiple states’ perspectives are considered and used as examples, but the Toolkit is designed for national use.
Some of the resources contained in the Elder Justice Toolkit have come from legal assistance organizations and have been re-formatted or re-purposed by NCLER...
This resource will continue to grow and have materials added to it over time. To receive NCLER communications and updates on resources, sign up here.
To find additional resources on elder justice topics, please read our Elder Justice Compendium.
A collection of our elder abuse webcast trainings can be found here.
Each topic includes a summary, an issue brief and step-by-step guide and a video. Here's an example of an issue brief on mandatory reporting for elder abuse cases.
