SC Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts accepting fall 2019 clients

The Nonprofit Organizations Clinic at the University of South Carolina School of Law, which provides free legal assistance to nonprofit organizations of all types, is accepting clients for the fall 2019 semester.

Students provide legal assistance to nonprofit organizations, under the supervision of Professor Jaclyn Cherry, in transactional matters that include incorporation, preparation of by-laws, preparation and filing of 501(c)(3) applications, contract review, preparation and negotiation, real estate, intellectual property and land use issues. Students may attend board meetings, provide advice on various legal matters, and provide legal assistance to start up organizations or organizations that are merging, converting or spinning off new ventures.

The number of clients that can be assisted is limited and once capacity is reached a waiting list will be created.

If you are interested in becoming a client, please contact Professor Cherry as soon as possible at or 803.777.3394
