Entrepreneurship Clinic Partnerships

The Weibling Entrepreneurship Clinic has forged unique partnerships that define the student and client experience. A diverse network of interdisciplinary professionals provides each student attorney with a multitude of opportunities to connect their educational experiences with the real world. Students are able to leverage expertise from these outside experts, not only to provide excellent legal advice to their clients, but also to build meaningful relationships that impact their careers. Working with clients is just the beginning as they develop relationships and skill sets that will last a lifetime.
