About the Clinic

The Innovation Clinic gives students the opportunity to counsel startups and venture capital funds on a broad range of corporate law and strategic issues including regulatory compliance, entity formation, stock options and employee equity, venture financings, licensing of intellectual property, privacy, employment, governance and founders agreements, and commercial agreements.

The Clinic also supervises students in helping evaluate potential venture investments as Venture Associates at the University of Chicago Innovation Fund. Students in the clinic interact with startup founders, venture capitalists, and other members of the technology ecosystem and teach workshops for entrepreneurs at the Chicago Innovation Exchange.
