Elder Law Society
Welcome! The St. Thomas University Elder Law Society was established in August 2012. Our goal is to establish and maintain Elder Law related opportunities for St. Thomas University law students. We work to promote and explore education, experience and employment in Elder Law. Despite being a relatively new organization on campus, the Elder Law Society has established itself as a prominent society on campus and throughout the community. The Elder Law Society has provided St. Thomas School of Law with informational sessions on continuing education in Elder Law and Board Certification, participated in nursing home pro bono projects, and hosted several networking events. During the school year, St. Thomas University law students have the opportunity to participate in the Elder Law Externship. These students work directly with the Probate Division of the Circuit Court and members of the Elder Law section of the Florida bar and gain first hand insight in to the many legal needs of the elderly. Each year, we host an Elder Law Symposium, where distinguished Elder Law attorneys are invited to speak on hot topics in Elder Law.
