Wills Project


The Wills Project aims to help people who cannot afford a lawyer to make a will and powers of attorney both for their property and for their personal care. Eligible clients (meeting certain income, asset and inheritance requirements) work with law students who are supervised by a lawyer to draft the will and powers of attorney. In 2014-2015 students assisted 116 clients with their wills and delivered 14 public legal education presentations on the topic of wills to 121 attendees.
