Entrepreneurs (generally) are not lawyers, and may not know the full extent of how the law can help or hurt them. In fact, there are many legal considerations that impact start-up companies and entrepreneurs, particularly in the areas of business formation and structuring, employment and intellectual property protection. This fireside chat will touch on these topics and more, and teach students about the core legal issues that affect small businesses.


In this free event, you will get to explore key legal startup essentials, including answers to the following questions:

  • Do I need to set up a company?
  • When and how should I organise my business?
  • What is IP and what should I consider protecting?
  • Do I need employment contracts or consultancy arrangements?
