Course Description

This course is the clinical companion to the Elder Law Seminar.  Those enrolled in the lab must take the seminar, but the lab is optional for those in the Seminar.  This course offers students who have completed three semesters of law school an opportunity to represent clients and develop practical lawyering skills. Students enrolled in the Clinics are certified to practice law and take primary responsibility for client representation under the supervision of their faculty/supervising attorneys. Client representation will focus on guardianship of older adults and/or disabled adults; estate planning for clients of limited means, including powers of attorney, health care directives Wills and testamentary special needs trusts; and eligibility for government benefits for long term care.
