The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) American Job Center offers no cost legal assistance to entrepreneurs at all stages of business development, whether launching a startup or growing an existing enterprise.

The newest addition to SLATE's lineup of legal issues workshops, Third Party Contracts and Commercial Leases, is designed to help small business owners understand the importance of third party contracts, how they work and how you can protect your business from potentially devastating mistakes that can result from poorly prepared agreements. 

The first workshop is scheduled to take place on Wednesday,November 19, 2014, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., at SLATE, 1520 Market Street, 3rd Floor, St. Louis, MO 63103.

Taught by experienced business attorneys from Legal Services of Eastern Missouri at absolutely no charge for dislocated workers, this workshop will teach participants to differentiate good contracts from potentially damaging ones, understand essential contract terms, avoid breaching contracts and learn ways to handle agreement breaches by others. Participants also learn to understand the terms of commercial lease agreements along with potential hidden costs and possible legal disputes.

Legal Clinics such as this are made possible through the Entrepreneurs' Business Legal Assistance Program (EBLAP) - a partnership among SLATE, the St. Louis Development Corporation (SLDC), Small Business Empowerment Centers (SBEC) and Legal Services of Eastern Missouri (LSEM). The program primarily serves dislocated or laid off workers from the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County.

Watch for a complete EBLAP Calendar of Workshops to be posted soon on SLATE's website at For more information and to register, please contact Tiffany Todd, at (314) 657-3547, or register online at
