A few words from current and former Elder Law Clinic students:

“I have really enjoyed my time at the Elder Law Clinic. The Clinic has both prepared me to be a better attorney and has given me an outlet to help some of the most vulnerable individuals in our society. I have specifically enjoyed helping our clients achieve some very tangible legal goals, like executing a will. It is very rewarding to be able to point to a project and say I helped make that persons life a little better. Overall, I would definitely recommend the clinic to other students and especially potential clients.”

 

“I cannot express how much I enjoyed the clinic this semester.  I had the opportunity to work with families and individuals who not only helped me further my legal skills but also touched my heart.  I got to hear the best stories and have the best company, all while handling the legal needs of the elderly in the Greater Peninsula area, such as executing estate planning documents.”

 

“The Elder Law Clinic has really been a formative experience for me during my time in law school. As a second-year student, having the opportunity to work one-on-one with clients who face real crises has helped me evaluate my interest in an elder law and estate planning practice. I have learned that I truly enjoy this area of the law, particularly because it allows me to interact with clients and solve issues that are critical concerns in their lives.”

 

“The Elder Law Clinic is a great service to the community. I was able to do substantive legal work for people who truly needed our help. My time with the clinic helped me develop real world lawyering skills while making me feel good about being a lawyer.”
