Free Legal Clinic for Nonprofits and Small Businesses

June 13 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm CDT

Free

On Thursday, June 13, UMKC Law School will host a free, in-person legal clinic to assist local nonprofits and small businesses with legal issues facing their organizations. This event has been planned in coordination with the Mid-America Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel, Koch, Stinson LLP, Terracon, and Kansas Legal Services.

Kansas City and Wichita-area nonprofits and small businesses are invited to apply for limited-scope legal assistance related to:

•Governance systems, policies and procedures

•Employee manuals

•Review of leases or agreements

•Intellectual property

•Other legal issues facing the organization

TO APPLY

•Interested nonprofits and small businesses should apply to participate in the clinic by Wednesday, April 24. UMKC Clinical Professor Danielle Merrick will review client applications and follow up as needed to clarify legal needs and identify a scope of representation and assign each client to a legal team with appropriate expertise.

•Applications will be screened for conflicts of interest and to ensure that the legal assistance requested is appropriate for a limited service clinic setting. Due to staffing constraints, it is possible that not all applicants will be selected to participate in the clinic. Priority will be given to nonprofits serving low-income clients.

•Nonprofits will be notified by late May whether or not they have been selected to participate. All applicants should hold the morning of June 13th to ensure they are able to participate if selected.

•Selected clients and attorneys will agree on the range of issues to be covered at the clinic and sign an engagement letter in advance.
