Entrepreneurship and Intellectual Property Law Clinic
The Entrepreneurship and Intellectual Property Law Clinic (PDF) is a teaching law firm staffed by upper-level Dayton Law students with an interest in business and intellectual property law issues. Student associates represent clients under the supervision of licensed attorneys experienced in business and intellectual property law matters.
Prospective clients include the University of Dayton School of Business Administration, the University of Dayton Innovation Center, the University of Dayton Design and Manufacturing Clinic, the University of Dayton’s Office of Legal Affairs and the University of Dayton Research Institute.
The clinic provides student associates with the opportunity to gain practical experience in a substantive area of law tailored to their career interests. Student associates devote substantial time to clinic clients and take primary responsibility for assigned cases. This includes meeting with clients, performing legal research, drafting memoranda and performing other client-related tasks. In addition, the clinic’s classroom component provides students with an opportunity to reflect on their experiences and focus on themes, skills and experiences of common interest.
Students enrolled in the Entrepreneurship and Intellectual Property Law Clinic receive four credit hours to satisfy our capstone or clinic requirement. Students who have taken LAW 6832 (Intellectual Property Law) and LAW 6801 (Business Organizations) are encouraged to enroll in this course.
