LegalCORPS provides free legal assistance in non-litigation business law matters to low-income owners of small businesses, small nonprofit organizations, and low-income innovators in Minnesota — through the services of volunteer attorneys.

LegalCORPS itself is a nonprofit organization that was started in 2004. Its mission is to expand access to the legal system — in the areas of business law and intellectual property law — to many who otherwise would be left out.


LegalCORPS coordinates three primary service delivery models: brief advice clinics, full representation assistance, and educational workshops.


Sound guidance on business law matters is essential to the success of any venture (whether for-profit or nonprofit), and the success of small businesses and nonprofit organizations is essential to the vitality of Minnesota’s communities.
