Thank you for contacting the Entrepreneurship Legal Clinic at the University of Nebraska College of Law.  We provide free legal services to early stage entrepreneurs engaged in new ventures located in the State of Nebraska.

Criteria for Selecting Clinic Clients

The Clinic will consider applicants who meet all four of the following criteria:
                                

1.     The applicant’s place of business is within the State of Nebraska;

2.     The work requested by the applicant is appropriate for students and presents an interesting educational opportunity;

3.     The applicant has not received a significant round of outside funding or financing from investors; and

4.     The applicant would otherwise be unlikely to obtain qualified legal advice

Clients who do not satisfy each of these criteria will be selected only under exceptional circumstances.  All client selection decisions are subject to staffing availability and are made solely with the Clinic Director’s approval.

Please answer the following questions to help us to evaluate whether we can be of assistance to you.  Certain questions may not be applicable depending on your circumstances (and those may be left blank).

Once you have submitted your answers to the questions, our office will review the information to determine if we have the capability to service you.  If so, someone from our office will contact you to obtain more information and inform you of the next steps.

Completing this questionnaire does not create any sort of attorney-client relationship. It is merely an application. Submitting this application does not restrict you from hiring another attorney or declining our services (if offered).
