Mini Law School for Small Business
Every other year, the Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Western New England University hosts monthly talks on basic business law for small business. The Mini Law School series is part of the Center's ongoing series of information sessions designed to help business owners with little or no business background get up to speed with useful business concepts. The sessions are accessible, practical, and interactive. Read more about these sessions in Business West (pdf). Here is an archive of the last Mini Law school for Small Busines Series:
