Business Law Clinic

Students want practical experience working with real clients as part of their Law School program. Many prefer a transactional setting to an adversarial one. The Business Law Clinic offers University of Minnesota Law School students the opportunity to represent business clients in a non-litigation context. Student attorneys gain broad transactional experience working with startup businesses and their entrepreneurial founders.

The Clinic is a two-semester, six-credit experience for 3Ls. Experienced business law attorneys from several law firms supervise two-person teams of law students working with clinic clients.

The Business Law Clinic does not take clients without a referral from one of its partners—the Metropolitan Economic Development Association, the Metropolitan Consortium of Community Developers, the Small Business Administration Veterans Services Program, the Carlson School of Management's Business Hatchery and Entrepreneurship in Action classes, and other entities internal to the University of Minnesota.
