Students will continue the journey they began in the Corporate Law course (and their Contracts and Property courses). They will hone their skills as legal consultants and advisors to small business entrepreneurs, many of whom are savvy businesspersons but are largely unaware of the legal and administrative risks they may face. Students work as consultants and as lawyers, working to understand and help refine business models, and then subsequently crafting legal strategies and documents in accordance with that vision.
The seminar accompanying the clinic will focus on various concrete skills associated with being a good advisor to small business entrepreneurs. It will also train students to be rigorous in ‘reality testing’ business ideas, particularly from a legal perspective.
