Legal Council For The Elderly

Mission: 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 Resource Center.

About Legal Counsel for the Elderly:

LCE has two functions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.).
