The Harvard Law Entrepreneurship Project provides pro bono legal research and analysis to entrepreneurs at Harvard and MIT. We match entrepreneurs with teams of four Harvard Law School students and an attorney supervisor who will work together to answer your legal questions over the project cycle of six to ten weeks. Legal questions can cover a broad range of subjects depending on the startup's needs, and participating entrepreneurs will receive a report at the end of the project cycle summarizing the team's findings.
HLEP is not able to provide contract drafting, incorporation, or patent prosecution services (though we can provide research assistance and advice on the legal issues associated with these processes). For help executing specific transactions, please consider the Harvard Transactional Law Clinics.
Our Fall 2013 project application cycle is now closed. We will be taking applications for our Spring 2014 project cycle in January, 2014.
