Elder Law Externship

Students in this clinic work under the supervision of attorneys from Kansas Legal Services in matters such as income maintenance, access to health care, housing, and consumer protection. Students also enroll in the Elder Law Research Project, in which they help prepare materials for the Kansas Elder Network, an Internet accessible database on elder law and gerontology

Students enroll in the fall and spring and receive three credits per semester for the clinic, and one credit per semester for the Elder Law Research Project.
