Dose of Good Legal Advice Opens Doors for New Health Center 1 - 2 - 3

Curtis Jewell, L’06 was more familiar with Black’s Law Dictionary than Gray’s Anatomy. Yet he played a vital role in the construction of the Sayre Health Center, which opens this fall in West Philadelphia.

As a student in the Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic, Jewell helped guide the board of Sayre Health through a labyrinth of legal hoops on its way to achieving nonprofit status and qualifying for federal grants.

Former Penn Law clinical professor Dina Schlossberg drafted the articles of incorporation and wrote the center’s bylaws. With her guidance, Jewell expedited the 501(c) (3) application process. “You really have to crystallize what the organization’s about so you can present a clear picture to the IRS,” said Jewell, who is now an attorney with Hogan & Hartson LLP, in Baltimore.
