    Course Description

    Students in the yearlong clinic provide transactional legal assistance to nonprofit organizations and small businesses. The clinic helps prepare students for work with organizational clients and introduces them to opportunities for transactional lawyers to further economic, environmental, racial, and social justice. The adjunct professor will provide close supervision of students as they interview and counsel clients; plan and strategize on matters; research relevant questions of law; draft correspondence, incorporation documents, memos, and other legal documents; manage client relationships; review employment and other policies; and negotiate agreements. Client matters may include entity formation, governance, contracts, intellectual property, and regulatory compliance.

    The adjunct professor is welcome, but not required, to lead weekly seminar sessions focusing on substantive areas of law, ethics, and lawyering skills.
