Community Economic Development Clinic [CED]
Charlotte School of Law’s Community Economic Development Clinic teaches students to utilize transactional legal skills to promote community revitalization. Typical CED projects involve the development of affordable housing, the startup or expansion of local businesses, and the creation of community development financial institutions. Students will learn that lawyers play an important role in community economic development projects.
Serving as outside general counsel, clinical student attorneys provide ongoing legal advice to CED clients in regard (but not limited to) corporate law, nonprofit law, tax issues, environmental/land use and other areas of regulatory compliance.
