What We Do

The ELC provides free transactional legal services to entrepreneurs. Through senior law students, we are able to service a limited number of entrepreneurial ventures.  We like to think we can do almost anything that emerges from starting or running a business with a few exceptions (see below).  Because we have limited capacity, we give preference to ventures that impact society and communities in positive ways.  See the list below for the types of matters we typically handle.
