Entrepreneurship Clinic Students

As one of Nebraska Law’s clinical programs, the Weibling Entrepreneurship Clinic serves as a capstone experience for law students interested in the practice of transactional law. Students will have all the responsibilities incumbent upon attorneys in a small law firm practice, which translates to direct client advice and communications, matter management, multitasking, and active participation in the life of the firm.

Because Clinic matters involve actual clients, Clinic students’ experiences will not be uniform. However, students will have an opportunity to develop a number of legal skills during their time in the Clinic. Students will be exposed to law office management techniques that include time-keeping and time-management skills.

In addition to the client work, students will be required to participate in an intensive “boot camp” orientation conducted at the beginning of the semester, as well as a weekly clinic meeting.

The Weibling Entrepreneurship Clinic is a 6 credit hour course. Students must be of senior standing (i.e., 3rd year), and have previously completed Business Associations and Individual Income Tax. To be considered for enrollment in the E-Clinic, you will need to apply in connection with the Law College lottery process, which is conducted late in the Spring semester preceding a student’s 3L year. Please contact us for more details about the application.
