The Wake Forest University School of Law’s Community Law and Business Clinic will host “Ask A Lawyer Day” on Wednesday, Feb. 18, from noon to 3 p.m.
Triad-area entrepreneurs who need legal advice for a small business or nonprofit but lack access to other professional services can receive assistance free of charge.
“Our Community Law and Business Clinic is about providing the resources of Wake Forest’s school of law students to support community-based efforts in Winston-Salem,” said Steve Virgil, clinic director. “To increase access to our clinic, we have decided to host open informational sessions where business owners and leaders of nonprofits can bring questions to our students and have them answered. We hope help local entrepreneurs move forward with their work by doing so.”
Participants will have the opportunity to speak to a third-year Wake Forest School of Law student and receive business consulting. To schedule an appointment, contact the CL&BC at (336) 631-1953.
The CL&BC provides pro bono legal and business consultancy services to small business owners and nonprofit organizations. Wake Forest clinic students provide services such as drafting incorporation documents, employment agreements and purchase agreements with vendors to non-profit organizations and to entrepreneurs. The clinic plans to host open “Ask A Lawyer” sessions on a regular basis.
The CL&BC is located in the historic Wachovia building at 8 W. Third St., Suite 100A.
