Clinical Opportunity for Collaborative, Community-Based Transactional Work – Apply Now!

The Community Enterprise Project (“CEP”) of the Transactional Law Clinics offers an opportunity for a group of students to undertake clinical work rooted in community development and transactional law. CEP students will connect with community organizations, identify organizational and community legal needs, and develop comprehensive strategies to address those needs while gaining valuable, real-world transactional law experience. The spring curriculum for CEP students will be two-fold. First, students will work collaboratively on projects undertaken by CEP and community partner organizations to address a particular legal need of the partner organization or its constituents, through written materials, workshops, or other means. Second, CEP students will complete real estate, small business, and/or non-profit cases for direct clients generated either through the Transactional Law Clinics or through the work of the Community Enterprise Project. Please note that CEP students must commit to completing approximately half of their clinical hours each week on Wednesdays and/or Thursdays at the Harvard Legal Services Center in Jamaica Plain. To apply, please submit a statement of interest (no more than 200 words), resume, and academic transcript (unofficial or official). In your cover email, please indicate whether you have a preference for taking CEP in Fall or Spring semester. Applications should be addressed to Brian Price and Amanda Kool and submitted via e-mail to  akool at law.harvard.edu and  clinical at law.harvard.edu. Interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, and all applications must be submitted by Thursday, April 3rd. Students will be notified of decisions on Monday, April 7th. If accepted, students will register for 3 or 4 clinical credits through the Transactional Law Clinics and 2 course credits for the associated clinical seminar. Continuing TLC students may take CEP for 2, 3, or 4 credits and do not need to register in the associated clinical seminar.
