The Baylor Law Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic serves at the cutting-edge of early-stage businesses by helping entrepreneurs build a strong legal foundation for their new ventures in a cost-efficient manner. Specifically, the clinic helps new businesses with entity formation and simple services agreements. The clinic generally operates on a low-bono basis, so that new businesses are not burdened with significant legal costs early in their lifecycle.
Founded by and under the supervision of Baylor Law Professor Allen Page, the Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic utilizes best practices for early-stage representation based upon Professor Page’s extensive experience in early-stage representation at large law firms in Austin, Texas.
Entrepreneurship Clinic clients are selected based upon a number of factors, including the educational value to the law students who are enrolled in the clinic, the potential impact of the business, and the current caseload of the clinic. Once accepted into the Clinic, each client is assigned to a student or team of students overseen by a faculty member or supervising attorney.
The Entrepreneurship Clinic operates throughout the year as a clinical course at Baylor Law for which students receive class credit as they perform relevant work to a future practice in corporate law. With a limited license to practice in Texas, students counsel with clients, draft formation documents and related consents and agreements and draft and revise services agreements, according to the needs of the client. As a result, participating students find themselves considerably ahead of their peers when they enter a corporate practice.
The growth of new business is accelerating and Baylor Law School stands ready to partner in this new growth. The Baylor Law Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic is excited to engage with both businesses and students as we work together to efficiently and effectively build new businesses.
