Capstone: Representing Entrepreneurs



This capstone course builds skills and knowledge needed to advise early-stage businesses. The course discusses diverse legal and business topics faced by start-up lawyers such as business formation, intellectual property, legal ethics, employment law, financing the enterprise, operational contracts, reading financial statements, online commerce law, risk management, and exit strategies.

The course is not meant to replace the core courses in these areas but addressees their particular application to the start-up arena. Students will learn to draft several types of business documents while also covering the legal doctrine necessary to advise start-ups.
