Estate Planning and Elder Law Program

Mission statement: The Estate Planning and Elder Law (EPEL) Program helps to connect students, professionals and members of the community in confronting important issues of succession, long-term care and end-of-life planning.

The Estate Planning and Elder Law Program at the Brandeis School of Law grew from a class assignment in a spring 2016 elder law class. 

The class focused on three projects: composing an online Medicaid primer, drafting a short guide to advanced care directives and planning a symposium on aging. But the enthusiasm displayed by the students impressed Professor Goldburn P. Maynard Jr.

That momentum led to the program being formally established at the law school. 

EPEL is powered by students and guided by an advisory board made up of local practitioners. Professor Maynard serves as faculty liaison.
