Abstract:     
What if you built an intellectual property clinic and hardly anyone came? This brief book chapter is a case study of the first two years of a new entrepreneurship law clinic in an evolving economy: West Virginia. While the clinic had entrepreneurial clients, those clients had developed little intellectual property.

This chapter takes a closer look at the chicken-and-egg problem of knowledge development in an evolving economy, and concludes that law clinics can only support IP growth - they cannot create it on their own. The chapter then generalizes from the experience to suggest ways that law clinics can support their entrepreneurial communities while assisting in intellectual property growth.

The chapter and book are part of the Creativity and the Law series.
