The Gladstone-Nir Legal Clinic for Start-Ups began its second year with Student Training Days, in which 18 top third- and fourth-year Law students spent three days with leading legal and business professionals, hearing lectures and gaining practical experience. The first two days were hosted at the Yigal Arnon and GKH law firms in Tel Aviv (the clinic’s two accompanying law firms), followed by a third day at Brooks-Keret Financial Management in Kadima.
Legal issues learned throughout the week were tested in client simulations by Assaf Ben-David, the clinic’s manager.
“The simulations are intended to help the students implement what they learned and to practice working with clients, both from a professional point and from an interpersonal one,” Ben-David said. The students also saw the importance of the work they would be doing in a thank-you video sent by entrepreneurs who said the legal counsel they had received from the clinic was invaluable to their progress.
The Gladstone-Nir Legal Clinic offers free legal services to under-represented entrepreneurs working on technological ventures.
