The University of Akron SEED Legal Clinic

The University of Akron School of Law began providing free legal services to the indigent in the late 1960s. The Small En-trepreneur and Economic Development (SEED) Legal Clinic was developed as an outgrowth of the original clinic to provide low cost legal assistance to emerging businesses in Northeastern Ohio. The SEED Clinic is able to provide low cost legal assistance by using the SEED clinic to provide law students with the opportunity to gain hands-on legal experience.

All work created by law students is reviewed by a licensed, supervising attorney.
