Today, the law school's Hale and Dorr Legal Services Center will host a workshop for the City of Boston’s Main Streets Program. BMS works to revitalize local commercial districts throughout Boston. Three students -- Duston Barton, 2L; Joyce Hsieh 3L; and Lerato Molefe, 3L -- will give presentations to program directors about legal issues related to non-profit federal and state compliance.
"The City of Boston’s Main Streets Program is the city’s primary vehicle for the development of local business districts," explained Brian Price, acting director of the Hale and Dorr Center. "By sharing their legal expertise with these business and community leaders, the student presenters will be making an important contribution to the City’s economic development efforts."
The students have participated in the Center's practice group called the "Community Enterprise Project." More information about both projects is available from the websites of the Hale and Dorr Legal Services Center and Boston Main Streets.
