Does anyone know anything about the IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship or the Corporate Lab?
Also does anyone have any info on any of these clubs: Chicago investment law club; Law and Internet Forum; Law, Inc. and the Personal Finance Club?
As 1Ls we can't get on clinics or the Corporate lab, but maybe a 2L or 3L will chip in here?
The IJ Entrepreneurship clinic seems pretty cool, I might try to work for them this summer. From the clinic website "The IJ Clinic teams lower-income entrepreneurs with some of the nation’s brightest law students [that's us, apparently
] to provide entry-level business people with the legal support they need to pursue their dreams." There is some pretty good info here: http://ij.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=577&Itemid=251
Corporate lab also sounds pretty cool. Paraphrased from a handout: "Students work with legal teams from companies like JPMorgan Chase, United, AT&T on issues relating to multinational business. The course aims to teach practical skills by working on actual projects with in-house counsel and by collaborating in the classroom on legal issues raised by the projects"
I don't know if the investment club or personal finance clubs are very active, and if they are I think they'd mostly consist of social activities with maybe some shared investment advice? I keep missing LINC meetings but among other things they aim to create opportunities for students from the Law School to get together socially with students from Booth. I think they also have some lunch events with guest speakers from corporate law types.
