The Roger Williams University Community Economic Development Clinic, our newest clinical offering, opened in the fall semester of 2013.  The focus of the clinic is to provide services to small, low-income businesses and not-for-profit organizations in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts.  Students enrolled in the clinic work with small business owners or operators in determining and facilitating their legal needs.  This includes determining the best legal entity choice, assisting with the filing of organizational documents, creating agreements, and creating leases and other contracts.  The primary goal of the clinic is to teach the practice of transactional lawyering while providing service to under-served entrepreneurs and organizations. Business Organizations is a prerequisite.
