The SIU Law School is a recipient of a Governor’s Engaging Aging Award.

The legal clinic for older adults allows senior-level law students to provide legal assistance to people 60 or older who could not obtain representation on their own.

The clinic is one of up to 13 community organizations that are recognized yearly with the Governor’s Engaging Aging Award for going above and beyond for making a positive impact on older adults.

They help with drafting wills, power of attorney for health care and property, guardianship proceedings and more.

The clinic consists of one attorney, an office manager and a small team of law students.

The clinic has been part of the law school’s curriculum for more than 30 years.
