CEDLC student attorneys assist small businesses, workers cooperatives, housing cooperatives, and nonprofit organizations in the District of Columbia and Maryland. We apply extensive knowledge in corporate, commercial, and transactional law to assist clients that may otherwise lack the resources to acquire legal assistance. Our goal is to assist our clients in promoting equitable economic development.
