The presentations were followed by one-on-one consultations with Incubator students about their specific IP needs. A dozen students from AUCI Incubator ventures and I-Corp program were in attendance. The WCL IP Clinic and the AUCI Incubator partnership has brought cross-campus collaboration between students from the law school and incubator venture leadership with over 75 students participating since inception. The ongoing collaboration will next focus on contracts including Non-Disclosure Agreements and Assignments of Rights.
