The Entrepreneurship Law Center charges fees for services which vary based on the time and complexity of work involved. Except in the case of nonprofits with limited budgets, a $500 fee is charged for the initial client meeting. If the client requests additional services from the Center, the initial fee will be credited toward additional fees. The Center bills on a project basis, rather than on an hourly basis. All incidental related expenses (e.g. filing fees, etc.) are the responsibility of the client.
Information for Potential Clients
Due to the volume of requests, it is impossible for the Center to provide service for all client applicants. To be considered as an Entrepreneurship Law Center client, please complete the Prospective Client Information Form or call the Entrepreneurship Law Center hotline at 312.503.3420 and leave a detailed message outlining the business, the type of legal assistance sought, and contact information. Selected clients will be contacted directly. We generally consider client requests at the beginning of new semesters in June, August, and December.
The Entrepreneurship Center is located in the Rubloff building at 750 N Lake Shore Drive. Please sign in at the reception desk in the lobby, then proceed to the Bluhm Legal Clinic offices on the eighth floor. Public transportation is recommended or street parking (on Superior or Chicago), when available. A number of parking garages is also available, but can be costly.
