There is currently one spot left in the Community Enterprise Project (CEP) for the upcoming Spring 2019 semester. As you may be aware, CEP is a by-application division of the Transactional Law Clinics in which students engage in transactional legal representation through a community lawyering model, focusing on communities in Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, Dorchester and surrounding areas. CEP students work with community organizations to identify organizational and community legal needs and develop comprehensive strategies to address those needs while gaining valuable, real-world legal experience.
In Spring 2019, CEP students will also represent cooperatives (housing, worker-owned and potentially agricultural), community land trusts, nonprofits, and small businesses in the Greater Boston area on various transactional and policy matters.
Please note that CEP students must commit to spending at least half of their clinical hours (typically on Wednesdays and/or Thursdays) at the Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School in Jamaica Plain.
Students will register for 4 or 5 clinical credits through the Transactional Law Clinics and 2 course credits for the associated clinical workshop.
Please let Carlos Teuscher (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you are interested in enrolling in CEP in the upcoming Spring semester.
