This semester, the OU College of Law is piloting a small business legal clinic at the OU Innovation Hub, where law students will have the opportunity to advise entrepreneurs in the early stages of commercializing innovative technologies and businesses.
The program is part of the OU Law course “Transactional Law Practicum II: The Law of Innovation,” which offers students the opportunity to gain practical experience while learning about transactional law practice in the context of advising start-up and early stage business. In addition to weekly office hours and client-centered work, the class meets to discuss client cases and to learn about the laws generally applicable in the new business context.
Law students can provide advice on the following:
- choosing a form for a new business (e.g., LLC, corporation, partnership, etc.)
- preparation and filing of business formation documents
- confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements
- preparation of basic employment letters or agreements
- review of small office lease contracts
- review of small loan agreements
Law students are setting up office hours in the Innovation Hub Think Tank every day to help interested persons with legal advice.
It is a walk-up clinic, but appointments may be scheduled by calling the Innovation Hub’s main phone number at (405) 325-2728 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Innovation Hub is located at 201 David L. Boren Blvd., Three Partners Place, First Floor, Norman, OK 73019.
