Clinical Opportunity for Collaborative, Community-Based Transactional Work
The Community Enterprise Project is a by-application division of the Transactional Law Clinics in which students engage in both direct client representation and community economic development. In addition to representing clients located near the Legal Services Center at Harvard Law School on transactional matters, CEP students work in small groups to connect with community organizations, identify organizational and community legal needs, and develop comprehensive strategies to address those needs while gaining valuable, real-world transactional law experience in a community setting.
To apply to CEP, please submit a statement of interest (no more than 200 words) and resume. In your cover email, please indicate whether you have a preference for taking CEP during the Fall semester, Spring semester, or either.
Please note that CEP students must commit to spending at least half of their clinical hours on Wednesdays and/or Thursdays at the Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School in Jamaica Plain.
CEP applications should be addressed to Brian Price and Amanda Kool and submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, and all applications must be submitted by Friday, April 3rd. Students will be notified of decisions on Tuesday, April 7th. For any questions about CEP, contact Amanda directly.
If accepted, students will register for 3 or 4 clinical credits through the Transactional Law Clinics and 2 course credits for the associated clinical seminar. Continuing TLC students may take CEP for 2, 3, or 4 clinical credits and do not need to register in the associated clinical seminar.
