Today’s fast-paced world means that entrepreneurs are finding more promising ways than ever of bringing their ideas to the public. But with that success means rising legal issues—the kinds of issues that we must prepare our students to be ready to handle. Entrepreneurs and investors will seek out those proficient in this area, and Carolina Law students will be ready to provide this service.

Our Entrepreneurial Law Association (ELA) engages students in the compelling world of entrepreneurship and its relation to the law. By hosting relevant panels and speakers and connecting the school with business start-ups and social enterprises of the Research Triangle, the ELA gives soon-to-be-lawyers an inside look at this exciting and potentially profitable field.

The Carolina Institute for Law and Entrepreneurship will be a working partnership between the UNC School of Law, the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School and the Chancellor’s Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The institute’s goals include giving law students the opportunity for hands-on experience with aspiring entrepreneurs — initially on the UNC-CH campus, and later in their practice careers — in areas such as organizing a business and intellectual property. As we continue to plan and implement this center, your support is fundamental in making it happen.

Entrepreneurial Thinking

Carolina Law offers ten dual degrees that connect students to the kind of diverse subjects and ways of thinking that are central to entrepreneurial advancements. Dual-degree programs such as our J.D./master of public health (M.P.H.)  and J.D./master of arts in mass communication (M.A.M.C.) can help open students up to worlds beyond the law school, further illustrating our unique take on training well-versed law professionals.
