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 several 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’s needs, and participating entrepreneurs will receive a report summarizing the team’s findings.

Please note: we are not able to provide 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 Fall 2021 Client Application is now open. The Fall 2021 Client Application can be found here. Applications are due by Sunday, September 12, at 11:59 pm EST. Applicants who wish to pitch at our Client Pitch Event on Saturday, September 18 from 1-3 pm EST can find the Client Pitch registration form here. Please reach out to hlep@hlep.org or clansang@jd22.law.harvard.edu with any questions. We look forward to working with you!
