Organizations and Transactions Clinic

Students work on structural, programmatic, contractual, affiliation, and governance matters for corporate entities. Students typically represent multiple clients during the term, interact with client CEOs, CFOs, board members, and general counsels, and work in teams with other students and the instructors. Students receive detailed comments about the design, content, and execution of work-products and client communications, and about their performance in client meetings and calls. Students regularly assess their own work throughout the quarter and prepare a self-evaluation at the end of the term.

Nonprofit Forms and Sample Documents

The Organizations and Transactions Clinic maintains a website containing roughly 200 form and precedent legal documents for nonprofit organizations. The materials relate to corporate governance; programmatic and earned income activities; fiscal sponsorship and other relationships unique to nonprofits; everyday contracting; and other areas. They include governance documents, contracts, practical management tools, and examples of advice communications. The site also contains a brief discussion about our take on legal document design.

The site is a resource targeted to lawyers and law clinics who work with nonprofits, whether on a pro bono or for-pay basis; lawyers who otherwise are looking for precedents; legal educators; and individuals who are interested in legal document design.
