Elder Law Clinic

Elder Law Clinic students and clientElon Law's Elder Law Clinic opened in the fall 2012 semester. Law students participating in the Elder Law Clinic provide free legal counsel and services, under the supervision of faculty, to low-income residents of Guilford County, ages 60 and above.

The clinic focuses on the civil legal issues of older adults, such as power of attorney, end of life planning, contract and consumer issues, housing, grandparent rights, Medicare and Medicaid, Social Security benefits, and Veterans benefits.

The Elder Law Clinic serves those with a monthly household income of $1,700 or less, if single, and $2,200 or less, if married. In Guilford County, low-income elders unable to afford private legal representation are served by the Legal Aid of North Carolina-Greensboro Office, which serves a six county area. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that one in five Guilford County residents will be over age 60 by the year 2030. The Elder Law Clinic at Elon Law helps to meet a growing need for legal services within this demographic.
