How to start a start-up?: Law of start-up companies

A new 15 ECTS course “How to start a start-up?: Law of start-up companies is a course for a new generation of legal professionals. 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.
