UVa Law & Business Transactional Clinic: Using My Law School Skills to Serve Darden Clients

Last spring, I was enrolled in the law school's Law & Business Transactional Clinic, through which 5 other law school students and I were matched with Darden students in the Summer 2012 Darden Business Incubator.  The Darden entrepreneurs (both first and second-year students) were looking to get their start-ups off the ground over the summer, and the law students (mostly 3Ls plus me) were responsible for helping the entrepreneurs identify potential legal issues and for providing basic, initial deliverables, such as entity formation documents, website terms and conditions of use, etc.  It was definitely one of the best courses I've taken at the law school, primarily because I love any practical course in which I feel like I'm actually learning a real skill or helping DO something! 

To learn more about the clinic (and to see some horrible YouTube video footage of me talking about it), check out the law school's news release
