This course is an advanced version of the New Business Law Clinic for returning Clinic students. It allows students to gain additional curriculum and experience in transactional lawyering under attorney supervision. Advanced students will have opportunities to continue their work from the basic course to provide legal assistance to entrepreneurs of limited means, in California's Bay Area and Central Valley. Advanced students participate in all aspects of the clinic legal services delivery system - 1:1 full service representation, limited service walk-in office hours, legal trainings, and content development for the New Business Law Clinic’s online legal library for entrepreneurs of limited means. Until it is safe to meet in-person, all client meetings and community trainings will be conducted via Zoom. The course will also likely provide opportunities to mentor students taking the basic course, through case conferences and serving on student teams. Students can apply through the Berkeley Law Clinic Programs: a href=https://www.law.berkeley.edu/php-programs/forms/clinics/clinical_application.php https://www.law.berkeley.edu/php-programs/forms/clinics/clinical_application.php/a.
Schedule of meetings and additional training sessions will be arranged between the Advanced Clinical student and the Instructor.
