University of Michigan Law School launches entrepreneurial law program
September 12, 2011
A rare program in entrepreneurship and law launching this fall at the University of Michigan Law School will steep student lawyers in the arts of entrepreneurial businesses and also lead to groundbreaking entrepreneurial opportunities for students University-wide, according to the school.
The Zell Entrepreneurship and Law (ZEAL) Program establishes a clinic to offer free legal advice to Michigan’s burgeoning number of student entrepreneurs, while simultaneously boosting the Law School’s curriculum to train law students to better serve both start-up and existing entrepreneurial businesses. This dual approach, combined with the depth and scope of resources involved across the full spectrum of the University, makes the ZEAL program unique.
Together the two parts of the program will encourage law students to offer legal advice to—and ideally, to join forces with—the growing number of student enterprises bubbling up as a result of U-M’s campus-wide culture of entrepreneurship.
