Advance Care Planning Clinic

The KU School of Law’s Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) offers free legal services to essential workers in health care settings. 

During the pop-up Advance Care Planning Clinic, KU MLP licensed attorneys, law students and pro bono private bar attorneys will help with completing the following legal documents:

  • General durable power of attorney for health care decisions
  • Health care directive/living will
  • General durable power of attorney for financial decisions
  • Last will and testament (for low-income/low-asset estates)

Eligibility guidelines:

  • The service is offered to essential workers in health care settings, including medical personnel, support staff (including workers in dining, facilities and other support areas) and administrative staff.
  • Applicants should be at 400% or less of the federal poverty level.
  • Workers at KU Law’s MLP partner health systems, LMH Health and the KU Medical Center campus of the KU Health System, will receive priority.

The clinic will take applications on a rolling basis. If application numbers are high, the clinic reserves the right to place applicants on a waiting list and to prioritize those most at risk for first service.

If you are interested in receiving services from the clinic, fill out the Advance Care Planning Clinic interest form. An MLP clinic student or attorney will contact applicants to complete the application process confidentially.
