NUS Entrepreneurship Society Collaboration Clinic
Last Updated Date:   10 November 2021


5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
This clinic is a collaboration between NUS Centre for Pro Bono and Clinical Legal Education and NUS Entrepreneurship Society (NES).

Clinical students will meet fellow student start-up founders taking part in a school-credited, student-run module on entrepreneurship, run via NUS Business School, and provide guidance to them on areas of law relevant to the start-up journey. Students will also have an opportunity to "pitch" their services to various student start-up founders and, where successful, to drafting legal documentation for specific start-up ideas to help turn the student's start-up ideas into reality.

Additionally, students will assist NES review contracts to facilitate NES’s partnerships with external organisations.

Note: Students who participate in this clinic will record credit for this clinic in AY2021-22 Semester 2. However, due to the nature of the collaboration between NES and CPBCLE and the timeframe of the NES-run module, the work will be spread out over both Semester 1 and Semester 2.

This course is offered through the year in tranches, including during university vacation.


All interested applicants must apply directly to the Centre for Pro Bono & Clinical Legal Education at lawclinic@nus.edu.sg
