The MBA Experience

Legal Advice

Legal advice for students who are involved in starting a new venture is available through the New Venture Competition or by contacting the Rock Center (rockcenter+hbs.edu). Through the generosity of several local law firms, including Foley Hoag and Hinckley, Allen & Snyder, the Rock Center is able to offer HBS students who are working on a business plan some legal advice. This counsel is available to help students who are developing business plans for ventures they are seriously considering starting. These half-hour sessions - while no substitute for engaging counsel - can help identify legal issues and hurdles that may arise and point you to specific issues you need to worry about (or not). Interested students should email the Rock Center (rockcenter+hbs.edu) for more information on scheduling an appointment.

Additional legal resources can be found through the Harvard Innovation Lab. Contact the i-lab for details.
