Cornell community members who meet certain income eligibility guidelines can work with Cornell Law School students in spring 2018 and receive a basic estate plan free of charge through the school’s Estate Planning Clinic. That plan will include a last will and testament, a living will, a health care proxy and power of attorney, all tailored according to the clients’ wishes.
The law students will prepare and finalize these documents under the supervision of attorneys who specialize in trusts and estates.
To qualify for this service, clients must meet the following income limits: single – less than $25,000 annually; family – less than $50,000 annually.
This service requires at least two visits to meet with students at the Law School on the Ithaca campus. Clients will be expected to sign a written commitment to follow through with appointments, giving at least 24-hour notice if an appointment will be missed.
Openings are limited. Email Joey Gates to request a spot as a client. Notification of client selection will begin in January 2018.
