The College of Law and the Brandery, a consumer marketing venture accelerator, have partnered to place law students at the company. Four rising third-year law students will work at the company this summer, assisting with a variety of legal services. Named the Brandery Fellowship Program, it is an opportunity for students to receive hands-on work experience while learning about and working with high-growth potential business start-ups.
The 15-week fellowship will begin this June. Students will help the fourth Brandery class with services including entity selection and formation, preparation of operating agreements, protecting intellectual property and other legal issues as they arise. In addition, they will have the opportunity to attend Brandery classes that address the many facets of starting a company (i.e. marketing, branding, raising capital, business models, etc.)
Students will be supervised by Professor Lew Goldfarb, director of the Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic, and representatives from Taft Stettinius and Hollister law firm.
