Entrepreneurship, Law & Innovation will focus on the lawyer as innovator. This course includes an analysis of the current legal market and an exploration of new merging market possibilities. Students will review multiple examples of both “creative disruption” happening within the practice of law and “disruptive innovations” that may benefit both attorneys and clients. Key innovations will also be reviewed for any ethical concerns implicating the Rules of Professional Conduct. This course will be taught in part using in-classroom experiential learning through simulated professional encounters and structured debriefing sessions. Students will collectively design a competitive business model.
This is an elective course.
