Wills Drafting Clinic
Elon Law’s Wills Drafting Clinic gives students the opportunity to represent low-income homeowners referred by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Greensboro. Students interview clients, draft documents to meet the needs of clients, conference with clients to explain and review documents, and oversee the self-proving signing protocol for those documents.
The wills drafting course operates as a firm, where students alternate serving as the firm’s managing partner. In firm meetings, students present an ethical problem related to wills drafting and engage the class in a detailed exploration of legal issues surrounding and transfer of property at death in North Carolina.
