The Law School has added two new courses to the curriculum for next semester: Entrepreneurship 401 and the Entrepreneurship Clinic. These are two different courses. The first, Entrepreneurship 401, is a cross-listed course offered at the business school. Law students that should consider this course are students interested in learning about entrepreneurship from the prospective of business. The course will introduce law students to the many issues faced by start-up companies, and provide law students with the opportunity to better understand the needs of small businesses. Students will be learning about these issues along with their business school classmates.
To enroll in the Entrepreneurship 401 course, please submit an unofficial transcript to Dean Duncan.
The second new course, the Entrepreneurship Clinic, is structured as a transactional law clinic. Students in the clinic will be working with the law school instructor in providing legal advice to the Entrepreneurship MBA students that are participating in business plan competitions. In this role, the students will be acting as legal counsel to the business plan teams as they prepare and participate in business plan competitions. Thus, unlike the cross-listed course, the students in the clinic are not enrolled in a business school course, but rather acting as advisors to the MBA students in putting together their business plans under the guidance of the course instructor. Since legal advice may being given, students interested will have to submit the following:
