Clinic: Intellectual Property
Students in this clinic represent individuals and small businesses in matters relating to intellectual property as well as business organization and planning. The clinic is part of the University of Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship, established by the state legislature in 2006 to 'train the next generation of entrepreneurs in an experiential manner that would assist businesses in the state today.' Students will receive intensive training in the relevant law and lawyering skills and will represent clients under the supervision of a full-time supervising attorney. Opportunities for collaboration with students and faculty from the University's School of Business may be presented. Some classes, and other activities, will take place off-campus at the Center for Entrepreneurship's offices in East Hartford. A scientific or engineering background may be helpful but is not required.
