1.10 Doctoroff Business Leadership Program

In the 2015-2016 academic year, the Law School will begin the third year of the Doctoroff Business Leadership Program, offering students the opportunity to earn the business leadership certificate and gain valuable business experience and training, while completing the JD program.

It combines fundamental and advanced business and law courses with co-curricular experiential opportunities in business, business law and entrepreneurship.  The program prepares law students to develop business enterprises, analyze complicated business transactions, think creatively about alternative capital structures, and acquire key management and leadership skills.

The courses offered as part of the program vary year-over-year, and are taught by noted experts in their fields from the Law School and the Booth School of Business. Courses offered for the 2015-2016 academic year include:

  • Accounting and Financial Analysis
  • Business Strategy
  • Corporate and Entrepreneurial Finance
  • Marketing
  • Strategies and Processes of Negotiations 

While these courses are designed to supplement the business training that students accepted to the Doctoroff Program receive, the Doctoroff courses are open to all Law Students. Questions about the program, its requirements, curriculum, and internship opportunities should be directed to the Executive Director of the Doctoroff Program or the Associate Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid.
