Afenya Montgomery noted that iCAN Collective is one of many new companies growing out of this collaboration.

“We are all talking about pairing diverse entrepreneurs — people of color, primarily black women — with resources and information to build their businesses,” Montgomery said.

In her quest to help get other people’s ideas off the ground, Avena needed some help herself. The legal clinic was that, and more.

“I was able to work with them — really hands-on training,” Montgomery said.

They paired it up with law and business students who worked as direct advisors for a flat rate of $500 per semester. The clinic helped her define a lease for her space and provided support in developing a COVID-friendly business strategy.

Business Law Clinic founder, professor, and associate dean Julie D. Lawton describes the partnership as mutually beneficial for both companies and students.

“For our students, this is a wonderful, vibrant, multidisciplinary experience, and for our clients, they can have this comprehensive support. Not only in terms of the law, but on the technology side as well,” Lawton said.

Nika Vaughan, founder and owner of Salon Blunt, is a returning client of The Law Clinic.

This is the clinic’s fourth year serving local women-owned businesses, and all businesses are welcome. To learn more about the Law Clinic, visit DePaul’s website.
