This program is designed to assist volunteer attorneys and paralegals who are participating in the PACO/LASC Pro Bono Wills Clinics which are held monthly at different sites throughout Central Ohio. At these clinics, attorneys talk with the clients after the paralegals prepare the documents. Clients are provided with completed simple wills, health care powers of attorney, financial powers of attorney, living wills, and organ donor instructions. The program will focus on providing these documents for low income individuals.

The registration fee is $110.00 and preregistration is required due to security reasons.
