Short Course Description

This course introduces students to the fundamental concepts of entrepreneurship law, contextualized in a global business world, with a particular focus on the United States and Israel. Whether students are interested primarily in start-ups, big business, technology generation, international relations, or law, this course will provide a core understanding of how to start and build businesses in global context. It will introduce students to the basics of entrepreneurship and related laws in the United States, and then will compare concepts to the global marketplace. It will pay particular attention to connecting concepts to on-the-ground examples, and students will develop practical skill sets that will have real world importance (e.g. venture capital term sheet negotiation, contract drafting). Furthermore, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, it will situate entrepreneurship law within the context of the current global crisis.
