Elder Law Clinic clients are coming into the law school for legal help, which is a first for Wake Forest University. The Elder Law Clinic is up and running on the university’s main campus, a convenient location for students.

Much has changed since the Elder Law Clinic started in 1991. The law school now offers several community-oriented programs taught by clinical faculty. These clinics give students practical experience in business law, criminal law, appellate law, and children’s law. Complementing the clinics are a wide variety of externships and a robust pro bono program.

In the Elder Law Clinic, the unpredictability of real client cases kept the clinic students on their toes. They honed their interview skills, navigated complicated legal rules, and counseled clients about the wisdom of different options. These eight “associates” were hard working, compassionate and creative!
