The Business Innovations Legal Clinic provides high-quality, pro bono transactional legal counsel to small businesses & non-profits working in economic development, many of which would not be able to obtain legal assistance otherwise. Our clients are based in Arkansas and are from the following sectors: food and farm, affordable housing, music & arts, and more. Services are provided throughout the state of Arkansas.
Under the close supervision of a licensed law professor with practice experience, students gain a hands-on, transactional legal experience via three major methods:
- By providing one-on-one counsel
- By teaching live, legal workshops on business formation, intellectual property basics, and other legal topics requested by small businesses and non-profits in the community
- By developing printed legal resources available to the public through online and print publications on a variety of topics including business formation, economic development guide to heir properties in Arkansas, and a joint venture manual for non-profits
