Law School to Host Entrepreneurial Boot Camp Schedule

October 9, 2007

YinThe Law School will host an Entrepreneurial Boot Camp program Friday, October 12 in Withers-Brown Hall's Purcell Reading Room, featuring members of the Alumni Business Advisory Council.

Among other things, it requires courage, determination, optimism, leadership and—financing.
