The purpose of the clinic is to help Connecticut’s entrepreneurs and small businesses that have suffered adversely from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic by providing free, limited-scope legal guidance during 45-minute telephone or video calls with a volunteer attorney. The COVID-19 Small Business Virtual Legal Clinic (the COVID-19 Clinic) is expected to run from May 2020 through August 2020.

If you work for a corporation, confirm that your employer provides professional liability insurance for pro bono services. If your non-law firm employer does not provide such insurance, the CBA’s pro bono insurance coverage may apply, solely to the service provided in this clinic, if you are an admitted to practice law and in good standing in the State of Connecticut.
