About This Class

Entrepreneurs (generally) are not lawyers, and may not know the full extent of how the law can help or hurt them. In fact, there are many legal considerations that impact start-up companies and entrepreneurs, particularly in the areas of business formation and structuring, employment and intellectual property protection. This fireside chat will touch on these topics and more, and teach students about the core legal issues that affect small businesses.

Takeaways

In this free event, you will learn about:

  • Setting up your company: Do I need to set up a company? When and how should I organise my business?
  • Intellectual Property: What is IP and what should I consider protecting?
  • Employment and Interacting with 3d Parties: Do I need employment contracts or consultancy arrangements?
