The Law & Business Clinic provides free legal services in a variety of business law matters to entrepreneurs and small businesses that cannot afford to retain a lawyer. If you are a current Ryerson student, Chang School learner, or affiliated with one of Ryerson learning zones (such as Ryerson DMZ), and plan to start up a business or have started a small business, you may be eligible for this program. Clients outside of Ryerson may be eligible subject to assessment.
Legal services will be provided to selected applicants on an ongoing basis throughout the academic year (September to April) by a team of qualified lawyers from various Bay St. law firms, who will work in tandem with Ryerson Law & Business students. To facilitate an engaging and participatory learning experience, students will draft client work products and conduct legal research under the direction and supervision of qualified lawyers.
