Clinic Description

Students enrolled in the Elder Law Clinic work to enhance, protect and preserve the autonomy of the elderly.. Students draft wills, prepare advance health care directives and powers of attorney, advise clients on Medicaid, Medicare, nursing home law, consumer law, guardianship/ conservatorship,  and elder abuse issues.  The clinic students occasionally represent clients in administrative hearings and in court.  The clinic also conducts community legal education events for the general public and for elder care workers.  The Elder Law Clinic emphasizes outreach to rural North Mississippi’s frail and isolated elderly population, traveling to community centers, libraries, nursing homes, hospitals and clients’ homes.
