Elon Law School to Open Elder Law Clinic


Elon University School of Law announced this week that it plans to open a student-staffed Elder Law Clinic this fall and will begin reviewing cases Wednesday.

The clinic will provide free legal counsel to low and moderate-income area residents aged 60 and over, according to a post on the North Carolina school’s website.

“The clinic will provide excellent educational opportunities for our law students by exposing them to a broad range of law and client circumstances,” Associate Professor of Law Margaret Kantlehner, who will direct the clinic, is quoted saying.

The clinic, which will operate under faculty supervision through the school’s Humanitarian Immigration Law Clinic and Wills Drafting Clinic, expects largely to address civil issues such as power of attorney, end-of-life planning, contracts, consumer issues, benefits, housing and grandparent rights matters.
