Course Details

Entrepreneurship Law

This course is designed to acquaint students with many of the legal challenges associated with launching and building an entrepreneurial venture, including leaving a current employer, forming an entity, selection of a company name, venture capital and debt financing arrangements, protecting the trademarks and other intellectual property of the new company, employment and worker classification issues, building a team, creating a company culture and risk management. We will also discuss social entrepreneurship, including not-for-profit organizations and for-profit businesses launched with the purpose of having a social impact. These issues will be approached from a practical perspective, which will include one or more guest speakers together with several hands-on exercises. The goal is for students, upon completion of the course, to be well acquainted with, and have certain basic tools to address, the wide spectrum of issues that confront most early-stage businesses.
