Univ of Cincinnati College of Law Entrepreneurship & Community Development Clinic

Summary

The University of Cincinnati College of Law opened the Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic in January 2011 and is now accepting clients. At the ECDC, third year law students will obtain “hands on” experience representing local small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs on transactional legal issues critical to their success. Such services include assistance and counseling on entity selection and formation; regulatory compliance and licensing; trademark and copyright protection; lease review and negotiation; contract preparation, review, and negotiation; as well as any other legal issues confronting a small business.

Students will perform all work at the ECDC under the supervision of its director, Professor Lewis Goldfarb. The ECDC will represent clients of limited financial means, including both for-profit and non-profit organizations, which cannot afford the legal services of the private bar. The ECDC will not charge for its services.
