Online LL.M. in Aging & Longevity Law
Program will begin in Fall 2017
Touro Law Center has received approval from the New York State Education Department for its new online LL.M. program in Aging & Longevity Law. The program, which will be available to law graduates and practicing attorneys in the U.S., will prepare lawyers to help serve society’s increasing aging population, which is creating a capacity crisis for elderly individuals, their families, the institutions that provide various services to the elderly as well as the legal system.
With online classes in real time, the new LL.M. program requires students to complete 24 credits, including 12 credits in three required courses and a 3 credit capstone paper or project. Required courses include Core Issues in Aging and Longevity Law, Estate Planning or Financial Planning for Aging and Incapacity, Ethical Issues in Representing Aging Clients and Their Family Members as well as an Independent Writing Project. Elective courses will complete the other 12 credits.
This graduate degree program builds on Touro Law’s strengths in Aging and Longevity Law. In 2013, Touro Law established its Aging and Longevity Law Institute and began offering a concentration in Aging and Longevity Law for J.D. students. The Aging and Longevity Law Institute (ALLI) was designed to provide members of the bench and bar, law students, professionals from other disciplines and members of the community with the information, tools and resources required to address the legal needs of the approximately 100 million Americans that are 50 years of age and older.
