    This pedagogy session will focus on two main themes: 1. preparing law students to become effective counselors to entrepreneurs engaged in startup ventures, and 2. training law students to act as entrepreneurs in the practice of law (whether in large firm, solo/small firm, or other practice settings) and in promoting access to justice. Capitalizing on the breadth and diversity of experiences of the panelists, the session will cover substantive law and business models teaching and skills training techniques in the varied contexts of traditional courses; transactional clinics serving for-profit, nonprofit, and hybrid ventures; experiential and simulations courses; interdisciplinary programs; competitions; and post-grad law practice incubators and residency programs. The pedagogies explored will include long-standing approaches proven to be effective, recent innovations, and evolving and experimental methodologies. Takeaways will include samples of teaching tools (such as fact patterns for simulations, “teaching cases,” flipped classroom exercises, uses of technology, and approaches to experiential learning), and guidance on accessing related resources. The session format will consist of three principal segments of approximately 30 minutes each (and with each including at least five minutes of Q & A with the audience), followed by approximately 15 minutes of open Q & A with the audience.
