Civil Clinic Student & Client

On July 29, 2016, the Civil Clinic held its second annual “Wills for Heroes” event at the VA Hospital in Lincoln.  Civil Clinic students Dan Christiansen, Bryan Gelecki, Amara Meyer, Jerad Murphy and Eric Synowicki provided advice and drafted basic estate planning documents for local veterans.  In its initial run in 2015, Professors Ryan Sullivan and Kevin Ruser, and three students served 14 veterans and their spouses.  Due to an increase in demand, this year’s program was expanded to five students who served 22 veterans and their spouses, drafting 76 estate planning documents.  Veterans who were unable to get an appointment for the event were put on a list and will be assigned to Civil Clinic student teams in the Fall and Spring semesters.
