Summary description: The Center for Entrepreneurship at Belmont University offers its students (Entrepreneurship and Social Entrepreneurship majors and minors) and practicing entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet with Nashville-based lawyers free of charge. The Center explains that:
“These lawyers generously donate their time to meet with students one-on-one, three times a semester during four 30-minute time slots. Students come to these meetings armed with tough questions ranging from intellectual property, contracts, mergers and acquisitions, to entertainment law and business formations. Students who participate in these Clinics avoid many of the legal pitfalls that entrepreneurs can inadvertently encounter and build their businesses on solid foundations.”
