Law School

CULI’s staff attorneys teach “Building Urban Communities,” a one-term class with one 2-hour seminar each Wednesday afternoon with approximately eight hours a week of work on different client projects. Each student is assigned three to five projects, including an incorporation and application for tax-exempt status and a real estate project for a nonprofit client. Students attend client meetings, draft documents and take responsibility for meeting the client’s needs, working closely with the CULI staff lawyers. Classes include overviews of nonprofit corporate structures, real estate financing for nonprofits, conflicts of interest, visiting lecturers speaking about their experiences with the nonprofit world and reports from students about their projects.
