Working under the supervision of a clinical law professor, Cornell Law students will represent clients in a variety of transactional matters, including entity selection and formation; founders’ agreements and initial business structuring; intellectual property protection; operational contracts; employee contracts; and other general corporate & transactional matters The Entrepreneurship Clinic will provide services during Cornell’s fall and spring semesters, and will consider new client applications before the start of each semester.
Client applications will be considered based on a variety of criteria, including whether prospective client has access to transactional legal services, and whether the work is appropriate in scope and complexity for the Cornell Law students who will be working in the clinic during the academic year as part of their coursework. The Entrepreneurship Clinic cannot provide services before September 2018.
