Course Description:

Offered in conjunction with the Legal Aid Justice Center, students in this yearlong clinic will advise and work directly with local nonprofit boards on a “legal health checkup” and other matters such as initial formation, establishing tax-exempt status, charitable solicitation, state/local taxation, contracts and ongoing legal compliance. Class sessions will examine corporate law and governance principles through the lens of Virginia state and local laws applied to clients’ issues. Check-in sessions will support practical work for clients. Client communication, organization and document editing skills are key to success in the course.
