Berkeley Center for Law, Business and the Economy

The Berkeley Center for Law, Business and the Economy (BCLBE) is the hub of Berkeley Law’s research and teaching on the impact of law on business and the U.S. and global economies.

 In 2015, Startup@BerkeleyLaw was launched as a joint initiative of BCLBE and the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology. Startup@BerkeleyLaw has expanded extensively over the past few months, forging connections between students, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists on campus and beyond. Read what BCLBE’s executive director and faculty had to say about this exciting program and how it came to life!
