Startup Law: Sustainability

Current Offerings

Startup Law: Sustainability (1083): This course offers an opportunity to study the history, legal structure, and financial incentives of the startup economy while getting hands-on experience advising clients--Stanford founders building sustainability startups. The curriculum has three pillars: lectures and guest lectures outlining fundamental concepts and topics, a simulation in which all students will represent "Model Corporation" throughout its early life cycle, and advisory work on actual startup client matters. For the client work, students will perform client intake, draft an initial scope of work, complete due diligence and make supplemental due diligence requests, make any necessary adjustments to scope of work, and ultimately deliver work product in the format most appropriate & valuable for the particular matter (e.g., drafted documents, written memos, and oral presentations). Because of the nature of the client relationship the course relies on students' hard work, flexibility, and commitment to keeping pace with the material and assignments. The class will meet for 4 hours per week. Elements used in grading: Class Participation, Attendance, Written Assignments, and Client Deliverables.
