I also couldn’t forget to give you the scoop about the newest clinic-to-be at NUSL: Professors Rashmi Dyal-Chand and James Rowan recently won a $500,000 grant from the Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration to start up a legal clinic aiming to help low-income people start and engage in business. Examples of the kinds of legal services the clinic will provide include assistance with documents relating to licenses, permits, zoning, and leases; drafting, reviewing, and negotiating loan documents; and help with agreements relating to intellectual property rights. Even better: this clinic will be staffed by NUSL students and is slated to kick off in the spring.
