Master of Science in Elder Law and Estate Planning

School of Law


Elder law advocacy and estate planning require the services of more than just an attorney. Accountants, financial services, and insurance professionals all play critical roles in the process. It’s important for these non-legal personnel to have a proper understanding of the legal realities of estate planning in order to serve their clients and the attorneys they work with.
