Elon University School of Law opened a Clinical Law Center. The law school offers three-credit courses dealing with will issues and mediation for juvenile justice disputes. The will clinic “operates as a law firm with the primary purpose of education for the law students.” Students lead firm meetings and acquire firm management skills. Students learn techniques regarding interviewing, legal researching, and financing for low-income homeowners. The Juvenile Justice Intervention Clinic allows students to practice case management and mediating suits.
