1. QBLC provides an opportunity for selected students to learn valuable business law and legal practice skills while working on and discussing client files and attending to clinic management.
2. QBLC provides pro bono business law services to small businesses, start-ups and not-for-profit organizations in the Kingston community and throughout eastern Ontario who would not otherwise be able to retain legal counsel to assist them in their operations.
Clinic students serve clients under the direction of Queen’s Law alumnus Peter Kissick, Associate Professor and Distinguished Faculty Fellow in Business Law at the Queen's School of Business.
Queen’s launched QBLC in 2009 thanks to a $150,000 grant from the Law Foundation of Ontario.
