Bet Tzedek is seeking applicants for a post-graduate fellowship to assist with its Small Business Development Project. Bet Tzedek’s Small Business Development Project invests precious legal expertise in underserved entrepreneurs, to nurture talent, develop innovators, and empower those who wish to build a better future in marginalized communities. The project provides legal education, advice, and representation on a range of commercial and transactional issues, including real estate, entity formation, IP protection, labor law, and liability mitigation to comprehensively address small business owners’ needs. Services are targeted to small business owners who have the building blocks for sustainable business, but lack the resources to afford legal and financial advice, with a particular focus on serving business owners from traditionally marginalized and underserved communities or populations.
Please submit a cover letter and resume to Diego Cartagena at firstname.lastname@example.org.
