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.

In 2015-206, I am teaching the following courses:


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

  • 15.615 - "Basic Business Law for the Entrepreneur and Manager"  (fall and spring)
  • 15.617 and 15.6171 - "Deals, Finance and the Law" (spring)*
  • 15.618 - "Startups and the Law"** (spring)  
  • 15.619 - "Startups and the Law"**  (fall)

These courses are open to students in all Sloan degree programs.  They are also open to students and researchers 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.

For more information about these courses, follow the link to the left to COURSE 15 OFFERINGS FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS AND UNDERGRADUATES IN ALL MIT DEPARTMENTS.


*Note:  15.617 and 15.6171 will not be offered in 2016-2017/

**Note:  It takes time to change the official name of a course as listed in the MIT catalogue.  15.618 and 15.619 in 2015-2016 have the same focus:  legal issues raised in a startup, especially an innovation-driven startup.  In the 2015-2016 catalogue, they will both be listed under the same name, reflecting this reality. But in the 2015-2016 catalogue, 15.618 is officially listed as "The Law and Cutting-Edge Technologies" and 15.619 is officially listed as "Launching a Startup:  Legal Tools and Frameworks," reflecting a time when these were different courses.  

ALSO NOTE:  Jeff Meldman offers 15.S51, a for-credit IAP course on intellectual property.

  • 15.S06 - "Core Values, Regulation and Compliance for Finance Professionals" (fall, H2, 2 sections)
