The Startup Clinic (previously known as the Startup Practicum) launched Spring 2016, has had over 200 clients and continues to grow and accept more applications. The students involved in the clinic have a diverse set of interests. The clinic is very flexible and is willing to listen and help any and all ideas. Our goal is to turn these ideas into opportunities for growth and success.

* The Startup Clinic is supported by a gift made to the Law School by individuals at Greenberg Traurig in the name of Larry Hoffman. No other relationship between the Startup Practicum and the fim or individuals there exists.
