Course Detail
Course Components:
Students will study and engage in business planning for law firms. While most law school classes focus on studying legal doctrine, this course will focus on applying sound business planning to facilitate profitable and sustainable law practices. As a collective course project, students will learn through developing a business plan, policies and procedures manual, liability insurance, and practice materials needed to help the S.J. Quinney College of Law establish a new clinical learning opportunity for future students. The hope and expectation of the course is to use student efforts to create (subject to faculty and administrative approval) a permanent "low bono" clinical presence affiliated with the College. This "teaching law firm" will allow students and recent graduates to provide low cost legal services to individuals, families, and small businesses.
