Legal Services DevelopersŐ Resource Manual


In recent years, as Legal Services Developers became an increasingly integral part of the elderly legal services and elder rights advocacy efforts within the 50 states and territories, there was a growing recognition that a need existed for a user-friendly reference manual for all, but especially new, Legal Services Developers.  This need was expressed by Legal Services Developers and was confirmed in a survey of Developers conducted by The Center for Social Gerontology.

This Legal Services Developers' Resource Manual has been developed to meet these expressed needs.  Developed by The Center for Social Gerontology, in conjunction with the National Association of Legal Services Developers, the manual is intended to be both basic and comprehensive.  The manual provides basic and concise information on the very comprehensive set of areas and responsibilities which the Legal Services Developers cover in their jobs.

The manual will provide new Legal Services Developers with a quick, yet wide-ranging, description of their job, the Aging Network, the legal services system, elder rights advocacy, and the various resources available to assist them in doing their job.  For both new and more experienced Legal Services Developers, the manual provides easy access to background information on the historical development of the Legal Services Developer position and also on the development of Older Americans Act-funded legal services programs.
