Abstract

The traditional law school appellate case method is not well-suited to teaching students either the substance and process of counseling entrepreneurial clients or helping such clients create IP strategies that effectively advance their business vision. This Article describes the author's creation of new courses and clinics to advance teaching IP in the emerging field of entrepreneurship and innovation law.
