Civil Clinic Students Travel to Scottsbluff
On July 20, 2016, Civil Clinic students Jerad Murphy, Dan Christensen, Bryan Gelecki, Leslie Remus and Amara Meyer set off on a 3-day trip to Scottsbluff to facilitate an Advance Directive Clinic (ADC) for seniors citizens in the Panhandle area. As part of the project, these Clinic students prepared 95 estate planning documents and served 30 clients. The Clinic has facilitated these Advance Directive Clinics for seniors throughout Nebraska since the fall of 2013. The project is a collaboration with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and Legal Aid. Since the inception of the project, Civil Clinic students have drafted over 900 estate planning documents for over 200 clients in the following locations: Beatrice, Bellevue, Columbus, Cozad, Fremont, Hastings, North Platte, Omaha, and Scottsbluff. This fall, Civil Clinic students will travel to McCook for another ADC.
