RALEIGH — In recognition of the anniversary of 9/11, Campbell Law School’s Pro Bono Council is once again partnering with the North Carolina Bar Foundation (NCBf) to host a Wills for Heroes clinic with on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the law school. Wills for Heroes provides estate planning documents for first responders in Wake County.
“At our past event in March, we were able to help provide 150 documents for 50 first responder families,” said Pro Bono Council Student Director Kasey Mochel ’20. “Especially on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we recognize the importance of ensuring every first responder has wills, powers of attorney and healthcare powers of attorney in place.”
The clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the third and fourth floors of the law school. There are 12 spots available for any licensed attorneys who would like to volunteer. Notary publics are also needed. To volunteer, register at: https://lnkd.in/eT9D4Ub
“We are still looking for a few attorney volunteers to help draft estate planning documents for first responders,” Mochel added. “No prior estate planning knowledge required, training and malpractice insurance provided. You will need to have an active N.C. Bar License to volunteer.”
The clinic is generously sponsored by Chambers & Ennis.
A blood drive is also being held through The Blood Connection from noon to 5 p.m. Sign ups are available here. Each donor will help save three lives, receive a $20 Target gift card and free snacks, according to organizers.
