Working with our neighbors to build a strong community

Professional Clinics and Consulting

Individual departments and offices across the university, as well, sponsor programs that support growth in our communities. Highlights include:

The USC Gould School of Law’s Small Business Clinic offers basic corporate legal assistance to small businesses, entrepreneurs and nonprofit organizations that cannot afford to pay market rates for legal services.

The USC Marshall School of Business’s Marshall Consulting Program brings together small teams of students and faculty to work with entrepreneurs and nonprofit groups in the neighborhoods surrounding the campus.

USC’s Small Business Diversity Office (SBDO) stimulates entrepreneurship through support of businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans and local suppliers.
