Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship Clinic (LTEC) is a new program that provides, qualified start-ups located at the Accelerator, with free legal services.
LTEC is the only clinic of its kind in Canada that provides upper year law students with a unique clinical legal education experience while supporting entrepreneurship and innovation in the Windsor-Essex region. Professor Myra Tawfik, founder and academic director of the LTEC, explains that the goal is to, “serve the legal needs of local start-ups and entrepreneurs while providing skills-based, hands-on learning opportunities for law students in intellectual property law and business law.”
This collaboration will make the Accelerator one of the few business incubators in North America to have a legal clinic with a specific focus on technology and entrepreneurship on site that provides free services to its clients. Current and future Accelerator members will have access to this great free service. As well, Windsor law students will have the opportunity to work on real projects and develop relationships with start-ups that can lead to future employment. This is a perfect example of the synergies that can be achieved through collaboration and will greatly enhance the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
