Call for Submissions Spring 2020 - The Elder Law Journal at the University of Illinois College of Law

Posted by Melanie Fierro, community karma 29

The University of Illinois Elder Law Journal (“ELJ”) seeks article submissions for its Spring 2020 publication.

First published in 1993, The Elder Law Journal is the oldest scholarly publication in the country dedicated to addressing elder law issues. We are an academic publication published bi-annually by the students of the University of Illinois College of Law concerning elder law topics. Each issue consists of three parts: a lead, student, and recent development/ essay sections.

The Elder Law Journal publishes manuscripts which not only address policy decisions but also guide practicing attorneys. Thus, the scope of The Elder Law Journal makes it the perfect addition to the libraries of attorneys who advise clients on estate planning, living wills, arrangements for long-term nursing care, qualifying for Medicaid, as well as other areas of law pertinent to the elderly. Additionally, articles in The Elder Law Journal are of interest to scholars and professionals in fields such as social work, gerontology, ethics, and medicine.

We encourage all authors to submit their manuscripts electronically via email ( or via Scholastica.
