The Jodi G. Marquette American Indian Wills Clinic at Oklahoma City University School of Law is accepting clients for estate planning services.
Through this clinic, law students working under the supervision of a licensed attorney provide wills drafting services to American Indians who own an interest in Indian land in Oklahoma. These services will be provided free of charge, thanks to a generous anonymous donation of $250,000 to further the work of the Native American Legal Resource Center’s (NALRC) Wills Services Project, which received its initial funding from the Oklahoma Bar Foundation.
The American Indian Wills Clinic first began in January 2009 as part of the NALRC’s Native American Externship Program – with $20,000 in seed funds provided by the Oklahoma Bar Foundation. The program offers practical experience for students who provide needed legal services while receiving instruction and training in client relations, as well as the complex area of American Indian estate planning.
