This is an interesting development. With the rise in entrepreneurial centers at universities across the country, it makes sense to extend this focus to law schools.
There is some debate as to whether or not a focus on such a broad discipline is necessary, but as someone who interacts with entrepreneurs on a daily basis, I think it can only benefit the business community. To have an attorney trained to think like an entrepreneur and be able to provide the kind of legal guidance entrepreneurial business owners need, I’m all for it!
I’ll be curious to see how or if Duke’s Fuqua School of Business Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and CU Boulder’s Deming Center for Entrepreneurship interact with the law schools’ entrepreneurship programs.
