All prospective clients should contact the Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic by completing our online application or, if you do not have internet access, by calling our main number (215.898.8044). If the applicant is qualified and the Clinic has capacity, the applicant will have a preliminary telephone interview with a member of the Clinic faculty. If the preliminary interview confirms that the applicant’s legal needs align with the teaching goals of our program, then the prospective client is invited into our offices for an intake interview with a law student counselor. After the intake interview, those whom we agree to represent receive an engagement letter detailing the scope and terms of our representation. When the client has signed and returned a copy of the engagement letter to the Clinic accepting these terms, our representation officially begins.
We serve the majority of our clients during the academic year (September–December and January–May). We accept applications for representation year-round, however, generally, we add new clients to our roster only at the start of each semester (September and January). Consequently, the timing of your legal needs is likely to impact whether we are able to accept you as a client.
