"I wanted to take a moment to say “thank you”. Last week was by far the most beneficial legal conference/CLE that I have attended in the past 10.5 years since I began practicing law. I left the conference feeling invigorated and ready to go to work in building an elder law focused practice and transitioning more towards estate planning/elder law and away from family law."

Earn CLE Credit

All courses provided by the Elder Law College are CLE accredited by the state in which the course is held. It is the responsibility of the student to apply for CLE credit in the state(s) in which they practice law. Most, if not all State Bars will, however, accept CLE credits approved by another state. Most State Bars require the CLE provider (the Elder Law College) to administer a course evaluation. After your course, the online evaluation link will be emailed to you and within six weeks after you submit your evaluation of the course, we will e-mail you the paperwork you will need to apply for CLE credits.

Before you register for a course, we suggest that you check with your State Bar(s) on their reporting requirements.

We’re With You Every Step of the Way

Elder Law College does much more than just provide you with the education and training required to offer Elder Law services to our senior population. Once you complete the seminar, you will have access to the reference materials and support you need to put your newly acquired expertise to work. We will provide you with assistance to manage your practice from a business standpoint, manage your growth and help you get more clients in the door.

The ELC document library includes specialized elder law drafts that cover known elder law cases, as well as documents, forms, research, references and every other resource material that an elder or special needs attorney may need in their practice. All documents are continually updated and easily customizable to fit the needs of each individual attorney’s practice.

Our document library represents an invaluable asset to meet each client’s unique needs, which translates to saving every practicing attorney precious time.

 “I am very proud to have been taught by Scott Solkoff.  Not only does he utilize understandable methods to teach complex subjects, but his passion for the practice is highly contagious.  My revenues more than doubled within months of becoming Scott’s student and they continue to grow today.  While increasing revenue was phenomenal, his lessons on how to develop a practice that truly fit my personality as well as the desire to help others were invaluable.  Some say you can’t have it all.  Scott teaches Elder Law in a fashion that allows you to challenge such a notion.” – 2017 graduate*
