    This workshop will cover contract law, IP and trademarking and employment law. It won’t cover legal structures for social enterprise.

    Qualified lawyers will provide information about negotiating contracts, trademarking and protecting your intellectual property and the basics of employment law.

    This workshop is for any Social Entrepreneurs who feel they need to:

    • Understand the ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ that should be considered when negotiating contracts with their key stakeholders
    • Understand the importance of protecting their valuable business assets such as logos, inventions, products and designs, with information on copyright, patents and trademarks
    • Understand the laws that must be followed to expand their team and ensure a fair relationship with their employees

    Please note, this is an educational legal workshop as opposed to a legal clinic. No legal advice on individual legal issues will be provided during the workshop.

    By the end of the workshop participants will have had the opportunity to:

    • Learn the key legal terms and procedures around contracts, intellectual property and employment from experts in these fields
    • Hear about the opportunity to access 1:1 Pro Bono Legal advice through UnLtd Connect

    Who is most likely to benefit from the workshop?

    Social entrepreneurs who need to learn the fundamentals of law to protect their social enterprise.

    This workshop includes a networking lunch – a great opportunity to meet your fellow social entrepreneurs
