Clinic students provide operations-related legal services to entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofits. These typically involve such matters as advising on the formation of a business, drafting contracts and other documents, writing or reviewing bylaws, and analyzing regulatory issues.
“The Clinic is all about having our students do actual legal work for real clients. Clinic students meet with clients, hear their stories and their needs, and craft legal solutions that help the clients to thrive. Everything we do is focused on getting our students that real-world experience.”
– Professor Christopher Muzzo, clinic director
