Primary Practice Areas
Mary Scouten is in her first year at Albany Law School. Mary graduated cum laude from Ithaca College with a degree in Aging Studies and Health Policy and Management. Throughout her undergraduate studies, Mary was exposed to many issues faced by the older adult population and became acutely aware of the need to advocate for the aging cohorts in the community. During her time at Ithaca College, Mary received various awards for community leadership, service, and academic excellence in Gerontology. Much of her work was tailored toward elder abuse education and outreach. She also held a summer internship with the Tompkins County Department of Social Services in the Adult Protective Services unit.
Mary now serves as the 1L Class President at Albany Law School and has recently been selected as a student member on the Aging and Disability Law Advisory Committee. Prior to law school, Mary worked as a Legal Assistant in Ithaca, NY where she handled cases ranging from family and elder law to real estate closings. This was a pivotal learning experience for Mary and influenced her to pursue a career in law to continue to make a positive impact on families and older adults.
