Students enrolled in the Trusts and Estates Clinic represent clients who need non-tax estate planning. Most clinic clients, whether single or married, have children who are too young to manage property themselves. Other clients have adult children, are childless, or are terminally ill or elderly.
Students in the Trusts and Estates Clinic may prepare client letters, wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, life insurance and retirement plan beneficiary forms, advance medical directives, and other estate planning documents. Students gain experience in interviewing and counseling clients, gathering information about property ownership, drafting documents, and assisting clients in executing them.
