Engineering and Entrepreneurial Law Being Offered for the First Time

The inaugural offering of engineering and entrepreneurial law will be held this summer and taught by Howard Rockman of Rockman IP.

Engineers and entrepreneurs are surrounded by legal and regulatory issues that impact the process of product design and development as well as startup formation. Regulatory environments and how they impact the enterprise will be explored.
The course will focus on the legal concepts and issues confronted by engineers and entrepreneurs. The course will focus on the basics of intellectual property law (patents, copyrights, trademarks), as well as contracts, entity formation and product safety and liability. These are all issues that are critical for the entrepreneur and engineer to understand and appreciate. Case studies and exercises (business school style) will be used rather than traditional law school style. The emphasis of the course is on the application of legal principles rather than legal doctrine.

Howard is a seasoned veteran teacher of engineering and IP law. Howard has been teaching legal courses to engineering students at NU for many years.

The course is listed in Caesar as ENTREP 495 Special Topics in IE and will be offered on Tuesdays from 6:00PM – 9:30PM.
