2 A Civil Rights Approach to Elder Law 29 A rights-based critique of such statutes, by comparison, has significantly greater potential to affect policy choices related to elder abuse. One reason for this is that such a critique provides a more complete—and far more problematic—picture of their impacts. 54 A rights-based critique of mandatory elder abuse reporting statutes could significantly impact policy choices due to the political and rhetorical weight such a critique could carry even if such statutes were not found legally impermissible in a court of law.

See also Schwartz (2001) (“[T]he presence of rights in a constitution [does not] require[] that they be judicially enforceable for them to be meaningful. There is also political enforceability. ”). Cf. Mark Tushnet, Why the Constitution Matters (2010) (taking this argument one step further by arguing that the primary value of the United States’ Constitution is that it creates a structure for the country’s politics). 18 See Minow, supra note 14, at 1867. 19 Id. 20 Cf. Doron and Apter (2010) (discussing the potential of an international rights convention, such as a proposed convention on the rights of older persons, to raise awareness about the plight of targeted groups).

The core competency of legal experts—whether they are legal academics or legal practitioners—is to identify and explain legal rules and entitlements. 63 Unfortunately, to date, the legal field has been largely absent from the study of gerontology. This absence partially reflects the fact that the legal field has only recently begun to recognize aging issues as relevant to its work, and that recognition has largely been limited to the emergence of elder law as a specialized area of practice. By contrast, legal scholars are only at the early stages of considering the possibility that elder law could be a distinct legal discipline worthy of theoretical and doctrinal analysis.
