The Berger Entrepreneur Law Clinic will educate and train students to provide transactional representation for entrepreneurs, innovators and startup businesses. Students will offer early-stage transactional legal advice and representation to entry-level entrepreneurs, innovators, and start-up businesses. The clinic will simultaneously educate students while providing direct representation on matters such as entity selection and formation, contract drafting, intellectual property protection, financing, and regulatory and compliance matters (including employment, licensing, and other state and local matters). Students will also develop the skills and knowledge to facilitate workshops, outreach and community training to educate and encourage entrepreneurship and creative business development, playing an especially important role in underserved and economically disadvantaged communities.
