Startup @ BerkeleyLaw

Launched in 2015 with the support of a generous gift from Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Startup@BerkeleyLaw is a collaboration between the Berkeley Center for Law and Business (BCLB) and the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology (BCLT).

Startup@BerkeleyLaw delivers dynamic programming for law students, entrepreneurs, and investors on current and emerging issues facing early-stage companies – delivering cutting-edge legal training for aspiring startup lawyers while enabling entrepreneurs at Berkeley and beyond.
