New Legal Services Resources

Last week, n4a's Amy Gotwals presented at the National Law and Aging Conference, speaking to legal services and other practitioners interested in improving their AAA partnerships.

Given the importance of legal services to AAAs and those they serve, n4a recently also supported the development of a national survey and resulting handbook on uniform statewide reporting systems for OAA Title III B legal services. The Borchard Foundation Center on Law and Aging funded The Center for Social Gerontology to survey the field and make recommendations as to how the collection of data around III B legal services could be improved. n4a was pleased to serve on the project's advisory committee and encourages interested n4a members to review the findings and share the handbook with their legal services partners locally and statewide.
