During fall semester, Distinguished Professor from Practice Susan Cook will supervise law students enrolled in the Trusts and Estates Clinic.
The students will do estate planning under her supervision for real clients and receive law school credit. To the maximum extent possible, the students themselves will interview their clients, draft documents, etc. Professor Cook will be the licensed attorney who supervises the students' work, and as such is responsible for all estate planning done in the Clinic. The Clinic has offered free estate planning as a courtesy to a limited number of Willamette employees in the past.
There are openings for fall semester. We are looking for either single or married clients with or without kids who have estates of less than one million dollars. Client interviews will begin in September, and work will be completed before the end of fall semester if possible. Sometimes it is necessary to go into the spring semester. If you are interested in having free estate planning work done in the Clinic, please contact the Clinic administrative assistant, Margaret Schue, at (503) 370-6140 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
