L&L-2-13- The IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship Goes Local
The IJ Clinic is a hub for entrepreneurial activity, where dreams can become a reality even for those on a shoestring budget.
The IJ Clinic works with University of Chicago law students to provide free legal assistance and support to low-income entrepreneurs. It helps clients through legal issues like licensing, contract drafting and hiring. And when it becomes clear that the laws are rigged against start-up entrepreneurs, the IJ Clinic fights to change them.
By helping entrepreneurs, the IJ Clinic makes it possible for them to pursue their dreams, provide for their families, serve customers and model entrepreneurship for their neighbors. The best example of the IJ Clinic’s impact is in its own neighborhood, Hyde Park, where a growing cadre of IJ clients are changing the world one customer at a time.
