1.11 Doctoroff Business Leadership Program

The Law School’s Doctoroff Business Leadership Program offers students the opportunity to earn a business leadership certificate and gain valuable business experience and training, while completing the JD program. 

The unique program 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 2016-2017 academic year include:

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

While the courses offered as part of the Doctoroff program 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.
