Community Enterprise

The Community Enterprise Clinic is a transactional clinic that provides legal counseling and representation to non-profit groups and organizations that are committed to effecting change through economic and community development in distressed communities in the Greater Pittsburgh area.

While providing pro bono legal assistance to neighborhood and regional community development organizations, as well as to a wide range of other non-profit groups, clinic students acquire and sharpen a particularly valuable set of lawyering skills: interviewing clients, document preparation, file management, time management, negotiating with government agencies and recognition of ethical issues. 

In the clinic, student attorneys provide a broad range of transactional services, including preparation of incorporation documents and bylaws; registration with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Charitable Organizations, trade mark application, and applications for recognition under Internal Revenue Code Section 501c.
