The William H. Bowen School of Law at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub will deliver a free workshop to help clear up the legal questions associated with opening a new business in Arkansas.

The workshop, “Let’s Make It Legal,” will take place from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, at the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub, 201 E. Broadway St. in North Little Rock.

The Innovation Hub is partnering with Bowen’s Business Innovations Clinic to present a free workshop where participants can learn how to start, structure, protect, and maintain a new business in Arkansas.

Sager Patel, a third-year law student from Kenya with a bachelor’s degree in biology from UA Little Rock, and Kristina Hallock, a third-year law student from Jacksonville with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Central Arkansas, will lead the workshop.

In 2016, Bowen received a $1,000,000 grant from the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office to create the clinic. Students enrolled in the Business Innovations Clinic, under the supervision of Kim Vu-Dinh, visiting assistant professor of law, work closely to serve the legal needs of small businesses, innovators, and non-profit organizations.

The event is free and open to the public. Fill out the online form to reserve a spot in the workshop.
