Elmore Entrepreneurship Law Clinic

The Elmore Entrepreneurship Law Clinic (EELC), jointly sponsored by the IU Kelley School of Business and Indiana Law, gives third-year law students and fourth-year joint degree students the opportunity to help new high-growth potential ventures become more operational and sustainable. The clinic provides you with more exposure to business clients and business issues while helping the community. You'll be advising entrepreneurs who otherwise might not be able to afford their expertise.

In many ways, the clinic operates as a small, business-focused law firm that provides business planning and legal services. In this setting, legal issues include:

  • Financial planning
  • Organization
  • Licenses
  • Agreements
  • Regulatory and zoning compliance
  • Intellectual property matters


  • Obtain permits and licenses
  • Research and register intellectual property rights
  • Negotiate contracts and leases
  • Advise clients on appropriate business form
  • Draft necessary formation documents

With offices in both the Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in the Kelley School of Business and in the Law School’s Lewis Building, the clinic is tightly connected to both schools, both physically and in its curriculum.
