Elder & Successions Law

ELDER & SUCCESSIONS LAW CLINIC

The purpose of the Elder Law/Successions Clinic is to allow students to gain an increased understanding of the substantive laws affecting the elderly. Students are exposed to various areas of elder law (which includes but isn’t limited to Medicaid and other government benefits) such as guardianship, wills, housing, consumer fraud, as well as abuse and neglect. The cases handled by the Elder Law Clinic consist primarily of civil matters. The students represent the indigent elderly in district court and in administrative hearings. The Elder Law clinic also handles all simple successions.
