Client Programs

The Harvard Law Entrepreneurship Project provides pro bono legal research and analysis to entrepreneurs in the Harvard and MIT community. We match entrepreneurs with teams of Harvard Law School students and an attorney supervisor who work together to answer legal questions over the project cycle of six to ten weeks. Legal questions can cover a broad range of substantive subjects depending on the startup or nonprofit’s needs, and participating entrepreneurs will receive a report summarizing the team’s findings.

Please note: we are not able to provide international law advice or transactional services such as contract drafting, incorporation, or patent prosecution (although we can provide research assistance and advice on related legal issues).  For help executing specific transactions, please consider the Harvard Transactional Law Clinics.  Applicants must have a current affiliation with Harvard or MIT.

The Spring 2021 Client Application is now closed.  The Fall 2021 Client Application will be available in August 2021. Please check this website then for instructions on how to apply to be a client and more information on the Fall 2021 project cycle timeline. In the meantime, you can email hlep@hlep.org to be added to our listserve and receive a notification when the Fall 2021 client application is live. We look forward to working with you!
