Cornell Law School is pleased to announce the return of our Estate Planning Practicum in the Spring of 2020. As in the past, the course will assist those who do not have access to an estate planning attorney and will provide clients with a basic estate plan that includes a last will and testament, a living will, a health care proxy and power of attorney, all tailored according to the client’s wishes. Law students will prepare and finalize these documents under the supervision of attorneys who specialize in trusts and estates.
Clients must meet income eligibility guidelines as this service is free of charge. The income limits are as follows: Single - less than $25k annually, Family - less than $50k annually.
Clients should be aware that this service requires at least two visits to meet with students at the Law School (on the Ithaca campus). In addition, once chosen to participate, 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. Spots are limited so if you are interested and meet the income guidelines, please email Joey Gates at email@example.com and you will be placed on a list. Notification of client selection will begin in January of 2020.
If you would like to be considered for this service, please email Joey Gates at firstname.lastname@example.org and supply the following information:
