Regarding the Garage Legal

Who is in charge of supervising the student volunteers?

Students enrolled in the practical course at the Faculty of Law of the Université de Montréal are supervised by an experienced lawyer who will ensure the quality control of the information to the clients. Student volunteers who participate in the clinic’s activities outside of the course are mainly supervised by graduate law students from the Faculty of Law of the Université de Montréal, but the supervising lawyer of the Garage Legal remains available to answer any questions.

What happens to an enterprise whose growth exceeds the limits of the services provided by the Garage Legal?

The Garage Legal aims to provide legal information to young enterprises. If a business’s rapid growth means that students are no longer able to provide substantial assistance, the business will be redirected towards professional help.

What kind of business is eligible for the program?

 The Garage Legal is not a business incubator. We are therefore not looking entreprises based on their development potential. To be part of the program, a business must have gone beyond the idea stage without having been necessarily legally incorporated. It is also important that the business is not already legally linked to a law firm.
