Entrepreneurs — social entrepreneurs, tech founders, authors, filmmakers, musicians— come to the free Entrepreneurship & Innovation Clinic (EIC) for transactional legal services that bring their ideas to life.
During the EIC, students navigate the rapidly evolving field of entrepreneurship law, which includes intellectual property, licensing, regulation, and corporate formation. Our region’s thriving innovation economy ensures the experience is as valuable to students as it is to clients.
Working under the supervision of the Clinic director, students will learn to work with organizational clients and learn to represent clients in transactions.
Students may have the opportunity to advise clients on a variety of legal issues, related to new and emerging businesses including:
The EIC has been accepted into the prestigious trademark portion of the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (“USPTO”) Law School Clinic Certification Program, which allows our students to prosecute a trademark directly and speak with the USPTO examining attorney on behalf of clients.
