More Rural North Carolinians Receive End-of-Life Documents

The Southern Coalition for Social Justice conducted its third wills’ clinic in Tarboro, North Carolina the weekend of February 19-20. During the clinic, twelve Edgecombe and Nash County residents had forty-four end of life documents made free of charge. Many thanks go to everyone who made the service possible: SCSJ coordinating attorney Chris Brook, the office of the Edgecombe County Agricultural Extension, and the ten law student volunteers from Carolina, Central, and Campbell Law. Carolina Law first-year and second time wills’ clinic volunteer D.J. Dore reflected that, “This type of work is exactly why I went to law school. It’s a great feeling to get outside the classroom and do something meaningful.”
