The Community Enterprise Project is part of TLC, but is directed by Patricia Alejandro. Students must submit an application by the deadline to be considered for enrollment in CEP. Students who are interested in the other divisions of TLC (business and non-profit law, or entertainment law) should enroll in the clinic through Helios (no application is required for these divisions).
In the Community Enterprise Project (CEP), students engage in direct client representation and community economic development. CEP students provide direct legal services to clients and work in small groups to connect with community organizations, identify organizational and community legal needs, and develop comprehensive strategies to address those needs while gaining valuable, real-world transactional law experience in a community setting. Students may also represent clients near the Legal Services Center at Harvard Law School.
To apply to CEP, please submit a statement of interest (no more than 200 words) and resume.
Please note that CEP students may be required to spend a portion of their clinical hours at the Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School in Jamaica Plain.
CEP applications should be addressed to Brian Price and Patricia Alejandro and submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, and applications will be accepted on a rolling basis after the initial deadline.
If accepted, students will work with the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs to register for 4 or 5 clinical credits (enrollment is through the Transactional Law Clinics) and 2 course credits for the associated Transactional Law Clinical Workshop.
