Wills Clinic – law student registration
January 30 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join SALSA as we help San Antonio’s indigent, vulnerable, and at-risk communities plan for their family’s future by drafting and executing a complete estate planning packet (Will, statutory durable power of attorney, medical power of attorney, HIPAA release, directive to physicians, and declaration of guardian).
SALSA’s Wills Clinics are held from 4-8 pm at the Center for Legal and Social Justice at St. Mary’s School of Law located at:
2507 NW 36th Street, San Antonio, Texas 78228.
Once you register for the clinic, you will be sent a link to our law student Wills Clinic resources page, which has a training video and other helpful information. Please watch the Wills Questionnaire training video before the clinic.
When you arrive at the clinic at 4 pm, you will be matched with a client to help them complete their Wills Questionnaire prior to meeting with the attorney. Once the Wills Questionnaires are complete, we will match clients, law students, and attorneys at 5 pm so that you all can begin drafting the estate planning documents. Once drafting is complete, you alert a SALSA staff member, and we have a Board Certified Estate Planning mentor review documents prior to printing. Once the documents are approved, a SALSA staff member prints the documents. We then have notaries present to notarize the documents, and you, the law students, serve as witnesses. The clients leave with a complete and fully executed estate planning packet to include a Will, Statutory Durable POA, Medical POA, HIPAA Release, Directive to Physicians, and Declaration of Guardian.
Wills Clinics are always a lot of fun! It’s a great way to get experience in estate planning and learn first-hand about the issues and concerns the clients have. It’s also a great way to meet some of San Antonio’s finest attorneys. Plus, the clients are grateful for the service, and it’s a wonderful way to give back to the community.
