We are pleased to bring you a special issue on elder mistreatment. This issue was largely organized by our special issue guest co-editor, Nina Kohn, J.D., Associate Dean for Research and David M. Levy Professor of Law at the Syracuse University College of Law. She is a well-published and respected expert in the area of elder law. Ms. Kohn recruited authors representing many facets of elder mistreatment and she details the articles and general area in her special issue introduction. You will have the opportunity to read articles from the perspective of a physician, judge, prosecutor, law professor, and guardian. Each author brings a unique viewpoint to the topic in a way that we hope will be useful to judges as they hear cases about elder mistreatment or simply hear cases involving older adults.
