Ever wondered what it takes to be part of a startup and what it takes to get from idea to launch? This two-day, hands-on workshop allows law students to experience the startup journey — by learning and applying the design and product skills necessary to build a startup. It will help participants become more entrepreneurially minded as practitiones within law firms, as in-house company counsel, or even as future startup founders.
In this workshop, you will participate in a design sprint, develop a product, build a business case and pitch deck, and pitch to actively investing VCs as the finale.
The workshop is taught by two lawyers who are product and design experts:
Jay Mandal, VP of Product Strategy at SAP and Stanford Codex Fellow, formerly served as CEO of a Google Ventures-funded startup and head M&A lawyer at Apple.
Jose Fernando Torres Varela, Fellow at the Stanford Center for the Legal Profession’s Legal Design Lab, Director of the Innovation Law Center at the University Sergio Arboleda in Colombia, and former Skadden attorney.
