Launch of How to start a Start-up

How to Start a Start-up: Law of start-up companies is an innovative project that we are starting from September 2018. Students will learn more about start-ups from diverse industries and will be able to cooperate with them. The project has two main elements. The first is a course on Start-up law with content-based seminars and workshops and the second is students’ cooperation with start-up companies and their direct engagement in the start-up community.

Future lawyers must become proactive problem-solvers with broad knowledge and skillsets – entrepreneurial, innovative and adaptive to changing circumstances and needs of their clients. Due to the rapid changes in the industry, the legal environment goes through dynamic changes as well.

In addition to specialized corporate lawyers, clients are seeking industry and tech-savvy proactive legal counsels who can provide them with not only start up life cycle legal service but also who are able to understand the specifics of whole sectors, the business as well as policy side. The course seeks to train the next generation of entrepreneurial lawyers who will work and shape this emerging field, bridging the gap between existing legal education and the needs of the market. This course will teach students how to think “outside a box”, understanding a broader and interdisciplinary framework with an entrepreneurial mindset.

The project is financially supported by the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship (Fonden for Entreprenørskab) and led by Assistant Professor Alexandra Horváthová and Assistant Professor Marta Andrecka.

Come and learn more about our innovative and entrepreneurial project on the start-up law. Meet with start-ups, the faculty and our students.
