The LCE Web Site is intended to provide general information about
legal and law-related issues of interest to seniors, and to direct
those seeking further information and assistance, or legal advice,
to some of the resources available. The Site was developed as a
public service to Alabama Citizens by LCE attorneys. Technical design
and support were provided by the Faculty
About Legal Counsel for the Elderly:
LCE has two functions:
- It is a University of Alabama Law School Clinical Program, partly
funded by the West Alabama Regional Commission (Area Agency on
Aging) that introduces law students to the growing field of elder
law and provides practical experience to 3rd year law students
during the fall and spring terms.
- As an AAoA legal provider, it also provides a broad range of
free legal services to those 60 or over who are residents of Bibb,
Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Pickens and Tuscaloosa Counties.
LCE is one of thirteen legal providers offering such services
in Alabama under grants from Area Agencies on Aging through the
Older Americans Act (42 U.S.C. § 3001 et seq.).
Special thanks go to Dean Kenneth C.
Randall for his support and encouragement
of the program and of this project.
