PROFESSOR SAMANTHA PRINCE LEADS VETERAN ENTREPRENEUR LEGAL POP-UP CLINIC
September 2022 — Professor Samantha Prince led the inaugural Veteran Entrepreneur Legal Pop-up Clinic held at Dickinson Law. The clinic was a collaboration with the Dauphin County Bar Association and the Eastern Pennsylvania Small Business Association district of the U.S. Small Business Administration.
This pop-up clinic, the first collaboration of its kind, was designed to work in tandem with the SBA’s Boots to Business program, a program that provides individuals who are transitioning to civilian life with information on how to start a business. Entrepreneurs received guidance at the clinic from local attorneys and law students with organizing their businesses in Pennsylvania.
Professor Prince has been volunteering and participating in the SBA Boots to Business program for several years. Her role has been to speak on entity selection and formation. “I am thrilled to expand my role in helping our military. Our pop-up clinic will serve as a pilot program for the SBA that we hope will be implemented in other areas across the country.” The intention is to hold two such clinics annually.
