Announcing the First Legal Eats Market
September 2nd, 2015 from 11am-4pm in the Brooklyn Law School Courtyard
On behalf of the Brooklyn Law School Entrepreneurship Club, we are pleased to extend an invitation to our first official “Legal Eats” event!
On Wednesday, September 2, 2015 from 11 AM — 4 PM, the courtyard of Brooklyn Law School’s downtown Brooklyn campus, at 250 Joralemon Street, will be converted into a market of local food, drink, and crafts.
Legal Eats is presented by the Brooklyn Law Entrepreneurship Club (“BLEC”). Now in its third year, our nascent organization is eager to work with local artisans and entrepreneurs for a daylong food festival during the opening weeks of the school year.
No RSVP is needed for BLS students, staff, or faculty members! Not a BLS student, staff, or faculty member, but want to attend LegalEats? Then you simply must RSVP — in advance — here!
We look forward to seeing you there!
Legal Eats is part of a larger mission of our school’s Center of Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) program to create a hub for exploring legal issues surrounding entrepreneurship and for providing effective legal representation and support for new commercial and not-for-profit businesses — while also training the next generation of business lawyers to advise and participate in these sectors.
In addition to participating in Legal Eats, all qualifying vendors will be invited to participate in Brooklyn Law School’s CUBE Consultation Center, which provides free legal consultations and referrals to one of our many student clinics, including our BLIP clinic, or other free/low cost legal service providers.
