The law school's Entrepreneurial Law Clinic students hosted two events during Philly Tech Week 2014, Philadelphia's annual gathering of tech entrepreneurs which wraps up on Saturday.

On the April 3 "LLCs For Startups" event 3Ls Chris Manchin and Fernando Rivera discussed 
the pros and cons of forming an LLC versus incorporating alongside an expert panel including attorneys Neil Cooper of Royer Cooper Cohen & Braunfeld and Geoff Weber of Weber Law LLC, and start-up accountant Andrew Malone of Fesnak & Associates.

In the "Hacker's Code of Collaboration" on April 8, 3Ls Matthew Herd and Elizabeth Rosenthal discussed who owns the intellectual property created during a hackathon or start-up weekend and the rights of team members collaborating on a potential start-up.  The event also featured an expert panel including start-up lawyers Lou Rappaport of Blank Rome, Fred Wilf of Wilftek LLC, and Rick Nucci, Dell Boomi founder and PSL president.

The law school's Entrepreneurial Law Clinic, directed by start-up lawyer Steven Rosard, provides legal advice for Philadelphia's entrepreneurs by matching students with a select number of innovative start-up company clients.
