Elder Law Research Guide: Databases

This guide presents the sources of law most often encountered in problems or disputes pertaining to the elderly.


The resources listed here are available through Loyola Law Library's subscriptions to electronic databases.  For access to items in Lexis, Westlaw, or Bloomberg Law, you must have a user ID and password from those services.  To use other subscription databases, you must have a valid Loyola ID and password.

Illinois Treatises and Practitioner Materials

Publications of the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education (IICLE) are also available online only for current Loyola law students and faculty and only on campus via IICLE Online Library. If Loyola maintains a print copy, a call number is given.  Print copies (non-circulating) can be found on the 3rd floor in the Reference area. The entire list of titles is listed on the IICLE Online Library homepage. Use the "browse books" tab to open the list.  Here is a selection of IICLE titles that may assist with elder law research:
