Some of the clients and partners* of the Business Innovations Legal Clinic are:
- Africa Day Fest, a festival based in Little Rock celebrating the food, music and culture of Africa. The Clinic will be assisting the Festival in creating a standardized procedure for completing all the legal forms and procedures necessary to host the festival.

- Dandy Line Kitchen, LLC, a social enterprise project in which post-incarcerated women on the road to recovery design, cook and deliver healthy vegetarian meals. The Clinic has helped Dandy Line evaluate and develop the best legal strategy to expand capacity. Part of this work included bringing them on-campus to provide healthy lunches and dinners to our faculty and student body at Innov-EAT Café, the coffee shop operated by the Business Innovations Clinic in which clients can sell locally-made products.
- Raising Arkansas, a non-profit, agricultural hub providing year-round growing opportunities for Arkansas farmers by creating healthy lunch programming, and developing blighted property into indoor farms.
