Representing Technology Start Ups

This course will cover theoretical and practical issues that arise when taking a start-up venture from conception, through formation, financing and growth, to exit. It will provide students with an understanding of the legal and economic principles involved in, and the role of lawyers in counseling, early stage companies and their investors. Topics to be covered include intellectual property, corporate, financial and ethical issues involved in the formation and commercialization of a technology start-up. Students will develop an understanding of the principal legal and business concepts and issues in the start-up process and, through the use of mock transactions and agreements as examples, gain practical exposure to the transactions themselves.
