Through the Startup Law Initiative (SLI), law students team up with law firms to provide free legal incorporation services to local entrepreneurs. SLI’s services allow Bay Area founders to overcome costly barriers to conducting business. Students are put into small groups and assigned a client to work with over the course of the semester. Students’ work includes research, client intake, interviews, drafting and filing documents (e.g., articles of incorporation), and interactions with clients and supervising attorneys. The business owners must meet income requirements to qualify for assistance.
