What We Do

The IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship empowers Chicago’s entrepreneurs in four ways: legal service, education, outreach and advocacy.

  • We provide free legal services to lower-income entrepreneurs, forging long-term relationships with a small group of clients to help them transform their companies and communities.
  • We teach and supervise University of Chicago Law School students in providing our legal services to entrepreneurs, preparing these students to be lifelong advocates for entrepreneurs.
  • We provide educational seminars and community events aimed at offering entrepreneurs practical advice on starting and growing a business, with a healthy dose of inspiration along the way.
  • We advocate to knock down excessive regulatory and legal barriers that keep entrepreneurs from making their dreams a reality.
