The legal services we provide include: choice of entity counseling, formation of for-profit and nonprofit entities, assistance in obtaining and maintaining federal tax-exempt status, contract review and drafting, real estate work, trademark and copyright work, employment law counseling, and general counsel services for nonprofit boards of directors.  The Clinic also offers a policy tract in which students work with community groups to develop local and statewide policy solutions to community development issues. The Clinic is a partnership between Texas Law and Texas Community Building With Attorney Resources (Texas C-BAR), a project of Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid.
