In partnership with Fordham Law alumnus William Malpica and Fordham Law’s Entrepreneurial Law Clinic, Community Capital recently held a one day pop-up clinic to provide valuable one-on-one legal guidance to 12 small business clients.
Directed by Professor Bernice Grant, the Entrepreneurial Law Clinic is a Fordham Law School, student run program that assists early stage, traditional start-ups and social enterprises with a range of legal issues. It is a great opportunity for the students to apply knowledge gained in other Fordham Law courses such as contracts, corporations, lease agreements and more. Julieta McPherson, Vice President of Lending at Community Capital said “this legal clinic is an example of the types of free services and programs that we offer to our small business clients. We are incredibly grateful to the Fordham faculty, students and William Malpica for advising these entrepreneurs who otherwise would not be able to afford legal services.”
