Elder Law: Introduction

This research guide is a selective guide to assist the legal researcher in conducting research in the area of elder law. It is not comprehensive in scope or intended to be a catchall source, but rather to act as a starting point for the researcher to find additional sources and relevant information. Elder law encompasses many different fields of law. This guide attempts to provide a selection of sources for the major areas of elder law such as estate planning, Medicaid, long-term care, Social Security, elder abuse, and age discrimination in employment. .

The guide is organized according to the topics listed to the left, in the guide outline. First, it covers Michigan law. Then the scope widens to consider national materials, followed by study aids, scholarly materials, forms, databases, and finally internet resources.

In the sections of the guide focusing on print materials, the "location" provides the call number for a work. Clicking on the title takes a user to the relevant entry in the catalog. Where possible, guide sections about statutes link to the appropriate law. “L” after the call number means the title is available at the Lansing campus, “AH” means Auburn Hills, “GR” means Grand Rapids, and “TB” means Tampa Bay.

And please contact us if you have any questions or need further guidance.
