Right: SCSJ interns Cameron Bond and Will Johnson work with an attendee to help prepare end-of-life documents.
SCSJ conducted its fourth wills’ clinic in Tarboro, North Carolina, as part of its efforts to prevent a leading cause of land loss in the South: heirs’ property passing without a will.
During the July 15-17 clinic, fifteen Edgecombe County residents had forty-six end of life documents made free of charge. Many thanks 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 Law and North Carolina Central Law. Carolina Law rising second-year and SCSJ summer legal intern Jean Abreu highlighted the rewards in “assisting clients in securing their property for future generations.”
