LLC Formation Clinic

The YLS Pro Bono Committee and Lewis & Clark Law School's Small Business Legal Clinic (SBLC) are coordinating a virtual LLC Formation Clinic to help new and existing small business owners legally form an entity. Each volunteer will be matched with a client and meet online for a brief, initial appointment this July 14-16.

Volunteers will be tasked with basic entity formation, including advising clients on whether an LLC is the best entity for their business, drafting and filing articles of organization, drafting an operating agreement, applying for an Employer Identification Number, and other introductory matters.

The SBLC will work with volunteers to coordinate a specific time for each volunteer and matched client to conduct the initial consultation. All volunteers will be provided additional details ahead of the clinic. No LLC formation experience is required - volunteers will be provided guidance documents ahead of time and will have backup attorneys available to discuss any issues that come up during the clinic.

We hope you will join us in supporting small business owners as they begin navigating post-pandemic business ownership.

Please email with any questions or to volunteer.
