Wills Drafting Clinic

Students in Elon Law's Wills Clinic review documents with Professor Margaret Kantlehner

Elon Law’s Wills Drafting Clinic is a law office which represents low-income clients including homeowners referred by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Greensboro, Housing Greensboro and Legal Aid of NC. Students interview and advise clients on estate planning, 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 Clinic operates as a law firm, where students alternate serving as the firm’s managing partner. In firm meetings, students review progress on client work, 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.

The Wills Drafting Clinic operates during the fall semester.
