"Law of the Aged" Web Links

The Duquesne University Center for Legal Information, which is also the website for the Allegheny County Law Library, lists useful links and resources on its web page dedicated to the "Law of the Aged."

These include:

Web Sites

MegaLaw - Elder Law
Virtual Chase - Elder Law
WashLaw - Elder Law
ABA - Commission on Law & Aging

Blawgs and RSS Feeds

Elder Law Prof Blog
PA Elder, Estate and Fiduciary Law Blog
Justia - Elder Law Law Blogs


Justia - Elder Law Articles

The referenced websites offer many resources, but some are a bit dated -- MegaLaw (updated in 2007) and Virtual Chase (updated in 2004). Still, such academic websites offer more trustworthy website links than would a mere Internet search on a term like "elder law", which often places commercial websites in prominent positions among results.

For another academic presentation of current and detailed legal websites, focused primarily on Pennsylvania, but extending beyond, as previously noted in my posting "PA Legal Research Websites" Shines (05/01/08),
