ABOUT NSU LAW'S SHARON AND MITCHELL W. BERGER ENTREPRENEUR LAW CLINIC: In January 2017, NSU Law established the Sharon and Mitchell W. Berger Entrepreneur Law Clinic. The gift has three components:
1. A direct legal services component operated by the College of Law
2. A university-wide coordinated educational component to promote entrepreneurial education for market-ready research, product innovation, business, and law
3. Community outreach involving public speakers, conferences, community trainings, and similar events that promote NSU as the center of entrepreneurial education

In partnership with other NSU colleges, the Berger Entrepreneur Law Clinic will facilitate community outreach and engagement. Students, staff attorneys, and faculty provide public education on business formation law, intellectual property law, privacy, regulatory obligations, and industry best-practices needed in the traditionally underserved communities which typically rely on non-venture funded business development.

This innovative educational track for non-lawyers provide front-line professionals the skills and knowledge essential to operate in highly regulated industries. All symposium programming will be streamed and podcast, enabling all online students access to participate in the conference.
