November 05, 2012 at 3:14 PM
Santa Clara Law and the High Tech Law Institute are creating a new Entrepreneurs’ Law Clinic to provide start-up legal services to entrepreneurs who have a connection with Santa Clara University. The clinic expects to launch in May 2013.
The clinic will help entrepreneurs with entity formation, financing, transactions and product counseling. Under the supervision of the Clinic Director, students will participate in all aspects of the clinics services. Santa Clara Law is now seeking applicants for the newly created position of Clinic Director. See the job listing at http://www.scu.edu/hr/careers/faculty.cfm?id=3581.
“This clinic strengthens our ability to prepare students to be 21st Century Silicon Valley lawyers. The clinic will also create collaboration opportunities with the Business School, the Engineering School and other parts of Santa Clara University, and it will provide more legal resources for entrepreneurs who are helping create new companies—and new jobs—in California,” said Professor Eric Goldman, Director of the High Tech Law Institute.
“The new Entrepreneur’s Clinic will be a huge win for our students and our community,” he added.
