Free Legal Services for Startups – Apply by Dec 15, 2019


Every startup needs a solid legal foundation. The Startup Legal Garage at UC Hastings Law School is now accepting applications from early-stage companies to be part of its Spring 2020 cohort.

Their program matches select law students with attorneys from top-flight Bay Area law firms to provide free legal services to qualified startups, including incorporation, equity splits, terms of service, vendor, customer, and employment contracts, basic funding work, and more.

Startups in the program pay no legal fees or equity. The Startup Legal Garage estimates that most of their startups save between $15,000-$30,000 in legal fees using the program. Their attorney partners and mentors oversee the student teams to make sure the work is done right, and the accepted startups can focus on building their product instead of on legal bills.

You can apply here. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until December 15, 2019. If you have questions after reading the FACT SHEET FOR STARTUPS, please send questions at [email protected].
