Entrepreneurial Law Project

Entrepreneurial Law Project

One of the primary barriers for early-stage entrepreneurs is the cost to obtain legal counsel. The Entrepreneurial Law Project (ELP)—a collaboration between the University of Arkansas School of Law and the Office of Entrepreneurship and Innovation— provides free access to legal education and programming for Arkansas-based entrepreneurs.


ELP is planning a series of workshops and events across Arkansas during the 2024-2025 season in Fayetteville, Mena, Morrilton, Little Rock, and Helena. ELP’s goal is to provide free access to legal support for entrepreneurs while providing valuable experiences for law students under the direction of practicing attorneys. This work will develop an entrepreneurial law ecosystem in our communities and help fill a significant gap in support for founders across Arkansas.
