COVID-19 UPDATE: SUMMER 2020
The BLG Business Venture Clinic is back from its exam season hiatus! Throughout the summer we will continue to provide local entrepreneurs with free legal information, but COVID-19 has impacted our operations in two ways:
1. We are currently unable to meet with clients in person. This also means our drop-in hours at the Hunter Hub and with other community partners are cancelled until further notice. However, we can easily communicate with you through email and phone or video calls. We are also looking into hosting virtual drop-in sessions for your quick legal questions.
2. Due to COVID-19, our response time may be delayed. Responses to initial inquiries can take up to 7 days, and work product may take up to 6 weeks depending on the complexity of your legal needs. We appreciate your patience during this challenging time.
Please note that the clinic is run by law students, meaning we can only provide legal information, not legal advice. We can create memos on specific issues and draft basic legal documents, but we cannot advise you on what actions you should take. If you require legal advice, we strongly suggest contacting a lawyer.
For other COVID-19 legal information, our partners at BLG have created a COVID-19 Resource Centre available here.
Get in touch with us by filling out the form on our Contact page. We also recommend taking a look at this blog post for key tips about how to prepare for a meeting with us so we can best help you and your business.
