An Introduction to the IPI
The Innovation Practice Institute (IPI) will have an introductory student event at the Law School on Thursday, Sept 12, in room 113 from 12:00-2:00 p.m. Faculty Director Mike Madison and Executive Director Stephanie Dangel will discuss their plans for the IPI this year and are excited to hear ideas from students and others supporters who want to join them for the official food of innovators and entrepreneurs everywhere (aka pizza and pop). The IPI is a first-of-its-kind collaboration among a law school, the practicing bar, and local innovators and entrepreneurs. The IPI re-imagines how the legal profession can advance regional economic development and puts that into practice with cutting edge research, new classroom models, hands-on mentoring of law students, and community engagement. The product will be a class of new lawyers who are uniquely positioned to participate in 21st century innovation.
