Our Cohort Program is a free, six-month incubation program for social entrepreneurs that provides affordable legal advocacy and financial, marketing, and resource counseling. Participants receive access to our educational materials and membership to Good Counsel's bronze level of service, providing them with five free hours of one-on-one legal counseling.


Through our cohort, we are creating a community of socially-driven, innovative, and dedicated entrepreneurs. We promote a culture reciprocity and collaboration in community of social entrepreneurs on the rise. We believe that this community enriches each and every one of our clients and partners, and therefore enriches the diverse and important work that they do in their respective fields.

Each Cohort member is awarded a name scholarship to cover the costs of participating in the program. In creating these scholarships, we honor the memory of remarkable individuals who have supported and inspired our work at Good Counsel.
