Business Law Clinic hosts pop-up clinics for Innovation District’s Startup Week

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

As part of Athens Startup Week, the School of Law’s Business Law Clinic held two free pop-up legal clinics for small businesses, startups and entrepreneurs. Clinic participants received guidance on issues such as choosing and structuring a business entity, how to divide equity among co-founders, intellectual property protection, licensing and permits, and complying with regulations.

Organized by the university’s Innovation District – a comprehensive ecosystem of places, programs and people all working together to foster innovation, entrepreneurship and experiential learning – in collaboration with Athensmade and the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce, Athens Startup Week in April was designed to showcase the growing entrepreneurship community in Athens and at UGA, and to help turn innovative ideas into products, business ventures and nonprofits.
