Washburn Law sets free legal clinics for veterans

Posted on


Veterans or their family members who need legal help on matters of wills, living wills and durable powers of attorney can receive free help at two upcoming clinics sponsored by the Washburn University School of Law.

Two Veterans Legal Assistance Clinics are scheduled on Saturday mornings, Feb. 28 and March 28, from 9 a.m. to noon at the law school, 1700 S.W. College.

The clinic for veterans or families of those with military service will be staffed by Washburn Law students working without charge under the supervision of faculty members. Those seeking assistance will undergo an initial screening before meeting with upper-level students who have been certified by the Kansas Supreme Court to be legal interns at the school’s Law Clinic.

Veterans or their family members are asked to bring proof of military connection and must meet financial eligibility requirements. Information about eligibility can be obtained by calling (785).670-1191.
