Law for the Entrepreneur and Manager: Course Description

'Financing for the Entrepreneur and Manager' familiarizes future managers and business owners with the legal issues they will face in a company from inception to dissolution. The scope of the OpenCourseWare is designed to allow students to confer knowledgeably with legal counsel for future business dealings, rather than to provide expertise in any area of business law. The lecture course is divided into two main sections. The first part deals with legal issues of concern to entrepreneurs, such as startup, separating from an existing venture, corporate organization and finance. The second section deals with legal issues of management, including intellectual property, contract law, litigation, corporate governance and dissolving the business. Lecture notes taken by students and the TA are included, covering all of MIT senior lecturer John Akula's lectures. Prior years' exams are included as study aids.

Lecture notes, exams, study questions and a reading list with selected downloadable papers are included. For more information on this free OpenCourseWare, visit the entrepreneurial law course page.
