Master of Science in Law Entrepreneurship Lab

Northwestern University, $27,750

The Master of Science in Law at Northwestern is a new degree program designed to teach STEM-trained students about the legal, business, and regulatory aspects of innovation and entrepreneurship. Grant funds will support a new interdisciplinary course within the Law School that will teach students about moving a life science technology product (medical device or healthcare IT solution) through the innovation lifecycle. Course objectives include: 1) equipping STEM students with the skills to shepherd a project through the innovation process; 2) sharing topics in law and regulation that are often overlooked and which can be obstacles to the innovation process; and 3) creating a minimal viable product or soft proof of concept that can be pursued beyond the course.
