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. If your program or agency is interested in sharing documents or ideas for the Toolkit, please contact us at ConsultNCLER@acl.hhs.gov.
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.
