Essentials of Startup Law

Darren Braham, Associate at Prince Lobel Tye

Monday, December 3rd from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Entrepreneurs (generally) are not lawyers, and may not know the full extent of how the law can help or hurt them. In fact, there are many legal considerations that impact start-up companies and entrepreneurs, particularly in the areas of business formation and structuring, equity and debt financing, and intellectual property protection. This class will touch on these topics and more, and teach students about the core legal issues that affect small businesses.
