HLEP's annual conference provides a unique opportunity for hands-on problem solving of legal and business questions facing startup companies. It brings together students, attorneys and entrepreneurs to tackle these issues in a team-based learning experience. This year's conference combines an exploration of entrepreneurship with social justice goals by incorporating the findings of students involved in this year's Incubate Workshop, which consists of student teams that will offer solutions to improve the operations and outreach of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau. As an attendee, you will:
- make contacts by working in small groups with attorneys;
- learn about startup issues by working through hypothetical problems, including IP issues, structuring equity and negotiating exits; and
- explore a range of career options by interacting and networking with lawyers who have experience working with emerging companies and entrepreneurs.
