The Business Law Clinic represents entrepreneurs and small business owners who are seeking legal assistance with for profit ventures, as well as individuals who are seeking assistance with nonprofit organizations in the Chicagoland area. Fellows typically work with several clients during the course of a summer, under the supervision of the director. The work is transactional in nature and may include providing assistance with a client’s choice of legal entity, its formation, basic contract review and drafting, commercial lease matters, zoning requirements, business licenses and permits, and applications for tax-exempt status. The Clinic does not handle litigation matters.
This agency is approved to host Graduate Fellows.
