Law & Entrepreneurship Clinic Summer 2013 Program

This eleven-week, 40 hour per week immersion experience provides students
the opportunity to work with startup businesses and entrepreneurs. The L&E
Clinic operates as a law firm using a paper-less document management and
time keeping system and is located at the Wisconsin Institutes for
Discovery.

L&E Clinic participants will use what they have learned in the classroom,
what they discover through research and collaboration and their legal and
life experience to prioritize and solve problems facing their clients. L&E
Clinic participants are supervised by experienced business law and corporate
attorneys and respond to wide ranging legal needs, including business
formation, capital structure, funding, intellectual property and contracts.
The L&E Clinic provides quality legal services with a robust review process
of work by private practice attorneys. L&E Clinic participants develop
skills and confidence in client interface while providing thoughtful and
productive solutions to legal, business, and ethical challenges confronting
early stage businesses. The L&E Clinic uses the varied expertise of
individual L&E Clinic participants to provide collaborative quality legal
services.

The L&E Clinic seeks to provide legal expertise in coordination with
accounting and business planning consulting to clients and continually
explores out-state clients as part of Law in Action and the personification
of the Wisconsin Idea. The summer L&E Clinic includes training in a wide
range of legal, ethical, and practical issues expected to confront L&E
Clinic participants. As the summer concludes, L&E Clinic participants will
meet with a supervising attorney to determine the appropriateness of
continued participation during the 2013-2014 academic year. Additional
students will be recruited at a later date to supplement the summer students
for participation during the 2013-2014 academic year. A tuition credit plus
a stipend will be available to accepted students. Permission of the
instructor is necessary to enroll.

Please email Jeff Glazer at jmglazer@wisc.edu if you have any questions.
