Columbia Community Enterprise Law Clinic
Professor Barbara Schatz, Clinic Staff
Students in the Community Enterprise Clinic provide legal assistance to nonprofit organizations and small businesses that cannot pay market rates for legal services. The clinic is of special interest to those in community development, in learning to work with organizational clients, and in learning how to represent clients in transactions. Students work to understand clients’ hopes and aspirations, help them anticipate and solve problems, and educate them about their responsibilities as heads of nonprofits or businesses.
