Yesterday, July 2, Western New England University announced that its Small Business Legal Clinic is accepting applications for the fall 2014 semester from entrepreneurs and small business owners in the Pioneer Valley. Announced in an email, applications are due August 1.

The Small Business Legal Clinic offers legal assistance with entity choice, employment policies, contract drafting, regulatory compliance and intellectual property relating to trademark and copyright. Under faculty supervision, law students work with entrepreneurial and small business clients who otherwise do not have the resources to access these legal services.

“The Clinic is a great resource for entrepreneurs who lack the finances to retain an attorney. By using the Clinic’s services, businesses can avoid problems by getting legal issues addressed early and correctly,” said Robert Statchen, Assistant Clinical Professor of Law for the Small Business Legal Clinic, in an emailed statement.

More information can be found in the Small Business Legal Clinic’s flyer, and the application is available on the Western New England University website. The Western New England University School of Law Small Business Legal Clinic was established so that law students could provide practical consultation to entrepreneurs starting new and building existing small businesses in the community. The Clinic itself is a great program that the Springfield Entrepreneurship Examiner has used in the past with excellent results. The Clinic does not handle litigation, instead focusing on issues that can be resolved within a semester by dedicated law students working under Attorney Statchen’s supervision.
