Hi – This website is designed primarilly to provide information about my different MIT courses.  It is a supplement to my official MIT Sloan faculty site.

NOTE:  For information about my new course, 15.S24, "Launching a Start-up: Legal Tools and Frameworks," including how to assure you have a seat for Fall 2014 even if you did not pre-register and are not at Sloan, follow the link to 15.S24 on the left.

My courses at MIT include the following:


COURSE 15 OFFERINGS FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS AND UNDERGRADUATES IN ALL MIT DEPARTMENTS: 

In 2014-2015, I expect to be teaching four courses under Course 15:

  • 15.615 - Basic Business Law for the Entrepreneur and Manager  (fall and spring)
  • 15.S24- [Special Seminar in Law] Launching a Start-up:  Legal Tools and Frameworks (fall only)
  • 15.617 - Deals, Finance and the Law (spring only)
  • 15.618 - Law and Cutting-Edge Technologies (spring only)  

These courses are taken by students in all of the Sloan degree programs.  They are also open to students from any other department at MIT. 

There are no prerequisites for any of these courses -- anything you need to know about the law, I will teach you. 

Undergraduates are welcome in all these courses.

MIT SLOAN EXECUTIVE EDUCATION OPEN ENROLLMENT LAW COURSES: 

I offer two Executive Education open enrollment law courses:

“ESSENTIAL LAW FOR EXECUTIVES:  THE MIT ADVANTAGE.” This 2-day intensive course is open to managers from anywhere in the world.  It is not a part of a degree program, but can be counted towards an MIT Sloan Executive Certificate. 

"ESSENTIAL LAW FOR ENTREPRENEURS IN INNOVATION-DRIVEN STARTUPS AND GROWTH COMPANIES (4Dx)" This course is being offered for the first time beginning in November 2014, and is also open to managers from anywhere in the world.  It will meet for a three-hour session each week for six weeks, in a virtual classroom, using a cutting-edge interactive technology which enables discussions between the instructor and participants and among the participants and groups of participants.

For more information about these courses, follow the link to the left to EXECUTIVE EDUCATION OPEN ENROLLMENT LAW COURSES.
