Wake Forest Law students involved in the Pro Bono Project are going to bring their Pro Humanitate spirit to help North Carolina coastal residents over Spring Break 2017, according to Executive Director Sarah Saint (JD ’17).
Under the direction of supervising attorneys, who also happen to be Wake Forest Law alumni, students will conduct a Wills and Advance Directives Clinic at the Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity on March 3-7.
“I cannot encourage you enough to take a few days out of your Spring Break to give back,” Saint wrote in an email to students. “This is a great experience if you have any interest in drafting documents, elder law, poverty law, estate planning, health care law, or just love pro bono.”
